CDC Ramps Up Ebola Response

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has expanded its monitoring of the possible transmission of the deadly Ebola virus to travelers arriving from West Africa. CQ Roll Call’s Tom Curry reports that the CDC has issued a Health Alert Notice to doctors and nurses to inquire about travel histories of people who have recent traveled to West Africa.

At a press briefing on Monday, the CDC outlined the health agencies staff deployments in Africa to monitor the spread of Ebola virus:

The CDC has deployed several teams to the region since the outbreak began.  We currently have 12 staff deployed in Guinea (5), Sierra Leone (1), and Liberia (6) helping to coordinate the response at the national level, providing health education and assisting with database management.  Our staff are also arranging and training teams of people who can do contact tracing – interviewing those who may have been in contact with ill patients to see if they have symptoms. We have partially activated our Emergency Operations Center to help coordinate Ebola technical assistance activities with our international and federal partners.  And CDC is in regular communication with our international partners – the World Health Organization and Doctors without Borders – regarding the outbreak, as well as the Ministries of Health in Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone.
