Ebola can be transmitted through bodily fluids. It is highly contagious because the sicker the person gets, the faster the virus multiplies in the blood. The virus can then be transmitted through sweat, urine, and feces. Family members and health workers caring for Ebola patients often get infected, which accounts for its widespread infection.
