This WHO infographic aims to inform the public on the measures they can take to travel to and from countries affected by the Ebola virus while significantly lowering their risk of contracting the disease.

Some of the advice may seem painfully obvious -- such as 'avoid touching the body of someone who died of Ebola' -- but others constitute helpful reminders to wash your hands with soap throughout the day and avoid direct physical contact with any person displaying Ebola-like symptoms.

The WHO infographic also urges travelers on airplanes to immediately inform airline personnel if they develop symptoms associated with Ebola such as fever, weakness, muscle pain, diarrhoea, bleeding and so on. Travelers are also urged to inform airline personnel if a fellow traveler is displaying tell-tale symptoms or signs.
