  • Hello. I want to take a few moments to speak directly to you, the people of West Africa.


  • Especially in Liberia, Sierra Leone, Guinea and Nigeria.


  • On behalf of the American people, I want you to know that our prayers are with those of you who have lost loved ones during this terrible outbreak of Ebola.


  • Along with our partners around the world, the United States is working with your governments to help stop this disease.


  • And the first step in this fight is knowing the facts.


  • First, Ebola is not spread through the air like the flu.


  • You cannot get it from casual contact like sitting next to someone on the bus.


  • You cannot get it from another person until they show the symptoms of the disease, like fever.


  • Second, the most common way you can get Ebola is by touching the body fluids of someone who is sick, or has died from it,

    第二, 最常見的伊波拉感染途徑是接觸體液,來自感染者或死於伊波拉的人

  • like their sweat, saliva, or blood, or through a contaminate item, like a needle.


  • That's why the disease is continuing to spread when patients are being cared for at home, or during burials, when families and friends laid their loved ones to rest.


  • That's why healthcare workers wear protection like gloves and masks.


  • It's why, if you feel sick with a high fever, you should get help right away, because with prompt treatment in a medical center, nearly half of patients can recover,


  • and it's why, when burying someone who has died from this terrible disease, it's important to not directly touch their body.


  • You can respect your traditions and honor your loved ones without risking the lives of the living.


  • Stopping this disease won't be easy, but we know how to do it.


  • You are not alone. Together, we can treat those who are sick with respect and dignity.


  • We can save lives, and our countries can work together to improve public health so this kind of outbreak doesn't happen again.


  • For this journey to work, and in building a stronger and prosperous Africa, you'll continue to have a partner in me and in the United States of America.


Hello. I want to take a few moments to speak directly to you, the people of West Africa.
