How Is Ebola Treated?

There is no cure for Ebola. Currently, people are treated for the symptoms; including fluids for dehydration, oxygen for those who have issues breathing; meds to control fever and blood clots; and antibiotics. Treatment works for almost 40 percent of the people infected with Ebola.
