Slide 3 - The Outbreak Reports as of October 24: 10,141 cases 4,922 deaths This is the largest Ebola epidemic in history CDC’s response is the largest international outbreak response in CDC’s history On August 8, the World Health Organization (WHO) declared the current Ebola outbreak a Public Health Emergency of International Concern (PHEIC) The PHEIC declaration underscored the need for a coordinated international response to contain the spread of Ebola Vermont Department of Health - EMS
Slide 4 - Future Estimates of Ebola Cases in Liberia and Sierra Leone In September 23 edition of MMWR,* CDC estimated the future number of Ebola cases if current trends continue in Liberia and Sierra Leone: Without additional interventions or changes in community behavior, CDC indicated by January 20, 2015 there will be approximately 555,000 Ebola cases in Liberia and Sierra Leone, or 1.4 million if correction for underreporting are made. Cases in Liberia are currently doubling every 15-20 days, and those in Sierra Leone and Guinea are doubling every 30-40 days. * The MMWR article: Estimating the Future Number of Cases in the Ebola Epidemic – Liberia and Sierra Leone, 2014-2015It is available at http://www.cdc.gov/mmwr/preview/mmwrhtml/su63e0923a1.htm, and a Q&A on the report is available at http://www.cdc.gov/vhf/ebola/outbreaks/2014-west-africa/qa-mmwr-estimating-future-cases.html Vermont Department of Health - EMS
Slide 5 - Outbreak Challenges in West Africa Overburdened public health and healthcare systems Unpaid healthcare workers Insufficient treatment centers, beds, medical supplies, and personal protective equipment (PPE) Vermont Department of Health - EMS
Slide 6 - Background on Ebola Vermont Department of Health - EMS
Slide 7 - Ebola is a rare and deadly disease First discovered in 1976 near the Ebola River in the Democratic Republic of the Congo Outbreaks occur sporadically in Africa Family of zoonotic RNA viruses Historically, death rates from Ebola range from 50%-90% Vermont Department of Health - EMS
Slide 8 - Transmission Ebola virus is spread through direct contact (through broken skin or mucous membranes) with: A sick person’s blood or body fluids, including urine, saliva, sweat, feces, vomit, and semen Contaminated objects (like needles and syringes) Infected animals (by contact with their blood, fluids, or infected meat) Ebola virus has been detected in breast milk, but is not know if the virus can be transmitted through breastfeeding Not transmitted by mosquitos or other insects Vermont Department of Health - EMS
Slide 9 - Symptoms Signs of Ebola include fever (greater than 38.0oC or 100.40F) (87%) and symptoms such as: Fatigue (76%) Vomiting (68%) Diarrhea (66%) Loss of appetite (65%) Severe headache Muscle pain Abdominal pain Unexplained hemmorrhage The incubation period is 2 to 21 days (average 8-10 days) A person with Ebola is not contagious until symptomatic Vermont Department of Health - EMS
Slide 10 - Testing & Treatment Virus is generally detectable in blood by real-time RT-PCR between 3-10 days post-onset of symptoms, but has been detected for several months in certain secretions (e.g., semen) No FDA-approved vaccine or antiviral drug is available Symptoms are treated as they appear. Basic interventions, when used early, can significantly improve the chances of survival. Providing IV fluids and balancing electrolytes Maintaining oxygen status and blood pressure Treating other infections if they occur Vermont Department of Health - EMS
Slide 11 - Patient Recovery Recovery from Ebola depends on good supportive care and the patient’s immune response People who recover from Ebola infection develop antibodies that last for at least 10 years, and possibly longer It isn’t know if people who recover are immune for life or if they can become infected with a different species of Ebola Some people who have recovered from Ebola have developed long-term complications (joint and muscle pain, and vision problems) Vermont Department of Health - EMS
