    EBOLA RESPONSE ROADMAP
    SITUATION REPORT
    12 NOVEMBER 2014

    ...
    Health-care workers
    A total of 564 health-care workers (HCWs) are known to have been infected with EVD up to the end of 10
    November, 320 of whom have died (table 6). This includes a HCW infected in Spain while treating an EVD-positive
    patient, 3 HCWs in the US (including a HCW infected in Guinea, and 2 HCWs infected during the care of a patient
    in Texas). In the week to 9 November, 3 HCWs were infected in the Kerouane district in Guinea.

    WHO is undertaking extensive investigations to determine the source of exposure in each case. Early indications
    are that a substantial proportion of infections occurred outside the context of Ebola treatment and care centres.
    This reinforces the need to adhere to infection prevention and control measures at all health-care facilities, not
    just Ebola-related facilities. WHO has conducted a review of personal protective equipment (PPE) guidelines for
    HCWs providing direct care to patients, and has updated its guidelines in the context of the current Ebola
    outbreak. Comprehensive mandatory training in the use of PPE, and mentoring for all users before engaging in
    clinical care, is considered fundamental for the protection of HCWs and patients. WHO has moved more than 1
    million sets of PPE to Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone, and continues to work with ministries of health and other
    partners to procure and distribute PPE where it is most needed.

        Health-care workers
        A total of 584 health-care workers (HCWs) are known to have been infected with EVD up to the end of 16 November, 329 of whom have died (table 6). This includes 2 HCWs in Mali (1 of whom died), 11 HCWs infected in Nigeria, 1 HCW infected in Spain while treating an EVD-positive patient, and 3 HCWs in the US (including a HCW infected in Guinea, and 2 HCWs infected during the care of a patient in Texas). In the week to 16 November, 8 HCWs were reported infected in Liberia, and 3 in Sierra Leone. However, the cases in Liberia are unlikely to have occurred during the past week, and are instead likely to represent cases whose onset went unreported over the course of previous weeks.

                        • The marked increase from the total of 678 HCW infections reported last week is due to additional cases reported from Sierra Leone that have occurred since the onset of the epidemic. These are not infections that have occurred between the two most recent reporting periods.
