Scientific Report published by EFSA concluded the risk of transmission of Ebola through bushmeat illegally imported into the EU is "low." The report states the probability of a virus surviving transportation to Europe is higher in fresh or frozen meat after a short transport time and lower in dried or smoked meat exposed to higher temperatures during transport. Thorough cooking (at 100°C) kills the virus. EFSA cautions that although the potential for introduction and transmission of Ebola through bushmeat is low, the public health consequences of its introduction would be serious given the high fatality rate and ease of human-to-human transmission. EFSA is working to identify consumption levels of bushmeat in the EU, or on how illegally imported bushmeat is handled, prepared and consumed in Europe. Scientists do not know for how long the virus survives in meat or animal products.
