Is Ebola air-borne, food-borne, or water-borne?

Actually we do not really know.

The source of ebola infection has yet to be indentified. But contagion seem to hapen by contact with infected body fluids.

can't you just ask all your questions in one topic? you've opened like 3 or 4 about ebola and it's getting confusing

I was about to delete them. I didn't as I noticed they are different. But, yes, you can try to ask in one topic.
