TIRE SAFETY:
Tires are one of the most important components of our cars. They are not cheap, but they are vital to your safety. Remember, the tires are the only thing that connect your car to the road. Advanced safety features such as antilock brakes and electronic stability control can't do their life-saving jobs without four good tires.

Here are 7 simple tire safety tips to help keep your car's occupants safe.
1. Check your tire pressure regularly (once a month, before long trips and when they appear under-inflated) and address under-inflated tires immediately
2. Don't forget the spare tire.
3. Check for tread depth, uneven tread wear and tire damage
4. Rotate your tires regularly.
5. Ensure proper balancing and alignment
6. Buy the right tire for the job
7. Replace worn or damaged tires promptly.

THE EBOLA VIRUS (KEY FACTS) -
Causes Ebola Virus Disease (EVD) in humans. EVD is highly infectious & outbreaks have a case fatality rate of up to 90%.
Transmitted to people from wild animals & spread through human-to-human transmission. Natural hosts are the fruit bats of the Pteropodidae family.
No specific treatment or vaccine is available for use in people or animals, yet.

SIGNS AND SYMPTOMS OF EVD
Early symptoms include sudden onset of fever, weakness, muscle pain, headaches & sore throat. A rash, red eyes, hiccups, chest pains, difficulty breathing and swallowing may also develop.
Symptoms may progress to vomiting, diarrhea, impaired kidney and liver function and sometimes internal & external bleeding.
Ebola can only be definitively confirmed by 5 different lab tests.
Incubation period is 2 to 21 days.
Symptoms may be mistaken for malaria, typhoid fever, meningitis or even the plague.

REDUCING THE RISK OF EBOLA INFECTION IN PEOPLE
No effective treatment or vaccine yet, therefore raising awareness of risk factors for Ebola infection and the protective measures individuals can take is key to reducing spread.
Reduce risk of wildlife-to-human transmission from contact with infected fruit bats or monkeys/apes & consumption tadalafilonlineoffer.com/what-is-erectile-dysfunctionmain-reasons-how-to-overcome-and-treat-it/ of their raw meat. Handle animals with gloves, protective clothing.
Cook animal products (blood and meat) thoroughly before consumption.
Reduce close contact with infected patients and their bodily fluids. Wear gloves & personal protective equipment when taking care of ill patients at home.
Wash hands regularly after visiting or caring for patients in hospital or at home.
Implement containment measures, including burial of the dead. People who have died from Ebola should be promptly and safely buried.
