Ebola: environmental cleaning guidance for potential contamination


The U.K. government has issued a report titled “Ebola: environmental cleaning guidance for potential contamination.”

People infected with Ebola are infectious only when they have developed symptoms. These include fever, headache, diarrhoea and vomiting. Once symptomatic, all body fluids such as blood, urine, faeces, vomitus, saliva and semen are considered infectious, with blood, faeces and vomit being the most infectious.

This guidance provides information on:
  • precautions to be taken by people carrying out cleaning procedures associated with suspected and confirmed cases of Ebola,
  • actions to take after the suspected case of Ebola has been assessed.

For further details, see Ebola
