    SITUATION REPORT

    ...
    HEALTH-CARE WORKERS
    A total of 546 health-care workers (HCWs) are known to have been infected with EVD up to the end of 2
    November, 310 of whom have died. Four HCWs were infected between 27 October and 2 November.

    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.
    Infection prevention and control quality assurance checks are underway at Ebola Treatment Centres in the three
    intense-transmission countries.

    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 521 health-care workers (HCWs) are known to have been infected with EVD up to the end of 27 October,
    272 of whom have died (table 2). The large rise in the number of infections of HCWs in Liberia reflects changes in
    its method of reporting, and the inclusion of cases that had previously not been reported.

    WHO is undertaking extensive investigations to determine the cause of infection in each case. Early indications
    are that a substantial proportion of infections occurred outside the context of Ebola treatment and care. Infection prevention and control quality assurance checks are now underway at every Ebola treatment unit in the three
    intense-transmission countries. At the same time, exhaustive efforts are ongoing to ensure an ample supply of
    optimal personal protective equipment to all Ebola treatment facilities, along with the provision of training and
    relevant guidelines to ensure that all HCWs are exposed to the minimum possible level of risk.

    Wow - about 5% of cases confirmed are HCW - that is a staggering percentage.

    HEALTH-CARE WORKERS
    A recent retrospective investigation of EVD cases from throughout the course of the outbreak in
    Sierra Leone indicated that the number of health-care workers (HCWs) infected was higher than
    previously reported.

    When the results of the investigation were incorporated into official national data, the number of
    cases and deaths recorded among HCWs in Sierra Leone jumped sharply, from 74 cases and 31
    deaths reported by WHO on 18 September to 96 cases and 61 deaths reported by WHO on 22
    September. In the present report, there is a further jump to 113 cases and 81 deaths amongst HCWs
    in Sierra Leone (table 2). This sharp increase again reflects the integration of the results of the
    retrospective investigation into the official national data. It is important to emphasize that the additional HCW infections and deaths occurred throughout the course of the outbreak. Any cases of
    EVD in HCWs are of great concern, but there is currently no evidence to suggest a recent increase in
    the incidence of infections of HCWs.
