During a recent Ebola outbreak in Africa the President of Uganda recommended that citizens avoid any physical contact, including handshaking and kissing.
Ugandans are so fearful of the disease that residents in one province where the outbreak was reported immediately fled the hospital after hearing patients with Ebola were there.
The disease has no known cure or vaccine and some strains can kill up to 90 percent of victims within days. People infected with Ebola usually have flu-like symptoms at first, but then soon begin bleeding from their eyes, ears nose and mouth as their vital organs shut down.
Because the zombie sickness is also thought to be deadly, incurable and transmitted through blood or body fluid contact, kissing may be an effective transmission method to spread the disease. And if the disease’s incubation period is days or weeks, the infected won’t show any physical signs until it’s too late.
So if your girlfriend is looking a little green around the gills pucker up at your own risk!
