While Ebola has ravaged parts of Africa in the last few months, Americans have been mostly insulated from this public health scare. There’s a lot we don’t know about the Ebola virus, but now that it has reached our shores, the public has questions … lots and lots of questions. The best way to prevent a mass hysteria or panic is to educate people about the virus. So, CNN has taken to the best live communication tool we have right now … Twitter.

 

 

 

You can Tweet your questions to @CNN with the hashtag #EbolaQandA for answers from Dr. Sanjay Gupta, chief medical correspondent for CNN and practicing neurosurgeon … or just search the hashtag and read all the answers listed so far. Here are some of the most common questions being Tweeted:

In all seriousness, this is a brilliant move on CNN’s part. Heading to Twitter, answering questions online through social platforms and videos … CNN knows where people are and how to get the most information to them quickly. Smart move on their part.

 

Do you have any Ebola questions?
