Ebola: Key questions answered

The BBC Ebola Facebook community and WhatsApp information service are ending this week.

However, the Ebola outbreak is not yet over, so BBC Africa has created a series of short videos to provide lasting advice to people in the affected countries and beyond.

This first video explains where Ebola comes from and what can be done to prevent it returning.

The BBC's Ebola coverage was recognised with a prestigious Peabody Award on 31 May 2015.
