People in areas known to have cases of Ebola can take the following precautions to minimize the risk of contracting the virus. Meticulous hygiene is necessary. Avoid people and bodily fluids of those known or suspected of having Ebola. Do not have contact with bats and wild animals; do not consume raw or undercooked animals that may have the virus. Only highly specialized, trained professionals with adequate protective gear should administer medical care to Ebola patients and handle the dead bodies of Ebola victims. Should you need medical care while you are in an area known to harbor Ebola, contact your embassy or consulate for a referral for an appropriate facility.
Antibiotics such as metronidazole , tinidazole , cephamandole , latamoxef , cefoperazone , cefmenoxime , and furazolidone , cause a disulfiram -like chemical reaction with alcohol by inhibiting its breakdown by acetaldehyde dehydrogenase , which may result in vomiting, nausea, and shortness of breath.  In addition, the efficacy of doxycycline and erythromycin succinate may be reduced by alcohol consumption.  Other effects of alcohol on antibiotic activity include altered activity of the liver enzymes that break down the antibiotic compound.
