Overview

The recent Ebola virus disease (or Ebola hemorrhagic fever) outbreak in West Africa has increased the possibility of patients traveling from the impacted countries to U.S. hospitals. Additionally, two American citizens with Ebola virus disease are being medically evacuated to the United States to receive care in a U.S. hospital. During this COCA Call, clinicians will receive updates on the status of the outbreak in West Africa and guidance on what steps U.S. healthcare facilities can take to prepare for the possibility of caring for a patient with Ebola virus disease.
