WHAT IS EBOLA? HOW IS IT SPREAD? AND HOW DO YOU CATCH IT?



 The first case of Ebola transmission in Spain has raised many questions in the class this week about this virus. The very discussed case on television of a nurse that has contracted the virus in a spanish hospital and whether sufficient protocols were implemented to protect health workers has awakened an interest in my students to know more about the virus. How is it transmitted? What are the symptoms? Is there a cure? are some of the questions asked in class.

 I have chosen a couple of simple, explanatory videos for you to see. I hope you enjoy them and you learn a little more about Ebola. I have also published a link to CBBC webpage where you can read more.
