This video presents a case study about caring for patients with Ebola virus disease at Nebraska Medical Center in 2014.
At the University of Pennsylvania, researchers and clinicians have been aiming their energy and expertise at Ebola, searching in the lab for drugs to treat it, in the clinic for strategies to safely contain it, and in the field to understand the social and societal factors that bear on it.
An aid group for the first time is treating confirmed Ebola victims in what is called the CUBE, individual biosecure units used in emergencies involving highly infectious diseases.
New research suggests that guidelines for the safe disposal of liquid waste from Ebola patients might not be sufficient to protect water treatment workers.
The training involved the use of the Transport Isolation System — a closed-off unit that can quarantine up to eight patients at once in flight.
