About the Ebola hemorrhagic fever

Since March 2014, there have been outbreaks of Ebola hemorrhagic fever mainly in Guinea, Liberia, and Sierra Leone in West Africa.

We would like to ask everyone to be reminded of the following:

It is extremely unlikely that Ebola is transmitted among humans through the air easily like influenza. The Ebola disease is spread by direct contact with the body fluids of a person who has developed symptoms of the disease. Therefore, please remain calm and act accordingly.

If you were in an affected country such as Guinea, Liberia, or Sierra Leone, and developed a fever within a month after returning to/entering Japan, please immediately call your nearest public health center for consultation and follow their advice, just in case. Please refrain from visiting any regular medical institutions.
