How is Ebola treated?

At present, there is no specific treatment for Ebola. A person suspected of being infected will be quarantined to prevent further spread and will receive supportive treatment. It is particularly important to seek treatment as early as possible: early treatment of Ebola significantly increases your chances of recovery. Treatment of Ebola will usually include rehydration and treating the symptoms as they appear. Blood transfusions may be required to replace lost blood.
