Ebola Virus Overview

The Ebola virus causes viral hemorrhagic fever disease, a severe and many times fatal disease in humans. The Ebola virus is transmitted by direct contact with the blood, body fluids and/or tissues of infected animals or people. While currently, the Ebola virus is not available for testing and there are no EPA-registered disinfectants to kill the Ebola virus, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is recommending the use of a “registered hospital disinfectant with a label claim for a non-enveloped virus (e.g., norovirus, rotavirus, adenovirus, poliovirus) to disinfect environmental surfaces in rooms of patients with suspected or confirmed Ebola virus infection”. 

Please view the website for the CDC (Center for Disease Control and Prevention) for latest on outbreak information.
