To ensure that audiences have all the facts about Ebola, VOA has also set up an Ebola microsite that provides clear answers to the most-asked questions: What is Ebola? How to avoid getting Ebola? What are the symptoms of Ebola? How is Ebola treated? The microsite also stresses the danger of misinformation, such as the false report of a vaccine for the disease.
