Drama otherwise known as movie has been part and parcel of our society and is one of the instruments for national mobilization, education and development because of its communication strength and the language barriers it broke, no wonder it was employed at the emergency of ebola virus in Port Harcourt. The core objective of the research is to study the effectiveness of drama in preventing the spread of ebola virus in the area and other South in Nigeria. Survey research method was adopted and 200 respondents were drawn using purposive sampling technique. However, findings revealed that people actually watched drama and other soap opera specifically packaged to create awareness and sensitize people on what they should know about ebola including how it spread and some of the symptoms. It was also admitted that drama, soap opera, and other forms of television play crucial role in preventing the spread and tensions earlier generated by the deathly nature of the virus. One hundred and ninety three (193) copies of the administered questionnaire were returned for analysis.
