As the death toll from the worlds deadliest-ever Ebola outbreak surged past 600 in West Africa, the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) warned West Africans to stay away from certain popular wildlife species that are thought to carry the disease.
We are not suggesting that people stop hunting altogether, which isnt realistic, FAOs chief veterinary officer Juan Lubroth said in a release on Monday. But communities need clear advice on the need not to touch dead animals or to sell or eat the meat of any animal that they find already dead. They should also avoid hunting animals that are sick or behaving strangely, as this is another red flag.
Fruit bats are among the most notorious for spreading disease, according to the FAO. The U.N. organization said West Africas current epidemic, which has so far killed at least 604 people in Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone, was probably first transferred from an infected animal, and then began spreading between people. Ebola is transferred by direct contact with the blood or body of infected people or animals.
