The US body has urged anyone who feels they are at a high risk of contracting the infection to be in isolation for at least 21 days. Despite the spread among people being limited, as per the US centers for disease control and prevention, any affected person can spread the infection to others through coming in contact with body fluids, infection sores, or sharing of items e.g. clothing and bedding.
