People who are diagnosed with Ebola don't realize it and they start to get the first symptoms in the first three days. Not until the seventh to tenth day do they start to realize they might have something more than the flu. They get several rashes, vomiting, bleed very easily. By now the victim is ten or so days in and the chances of survival are dropping. Without correct treatment, the patient's organs start to fail and death comes after fourteen to twenty days.
To prevent yourself from getting Ebola, you need to understand the symptoms and if you see any signs of the virus go to the doctor. Make sure if you travel you're going to some place that is safe. That means don't go to places that have had signs of Ebola in the past.
