    Health-care workers
    A total of 843 health-care workers (HCWs) are known to have been infected with EVD up to the end of 11 January 2015 in all affected and previously affected countries. 500 HCWs have died. Figures for the 3 intense-transmission countries are shown in table 6.

    Total 825 493
    Data are based on official information reported by ministries of health. These numbers are subject to change due to ongoing reclassification, retrospective investigation and availability of laboratory results. Data for Guinea represent confirmed cases only, and confirmed and probable deaths. Data for Liberia represent confirmed cases and deaths only. Data from Sierra Leone represent confirmed, probable, and suspected cases and deaths.

    Health-care workers
    • A total of 838 health-care workers (HCWs) are known to have been infected with EVD up to the end of 4 January 2015, 495 of whom have died (table 6).
    • 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.

    Health-care workers
    A total of 678 health-care workers (HCWs) are known to have been infected with EVD up to the end of 28 December 2014, 382 of whom have died (table 6). The total case count includes 2 HCWs in Mali, 11 HCWs infected in Nigeria, 1 HCW infected in Spain while treating an EVD-positive patient, 1 HCW in the UK who became infected in Sierra Leone, and 3 HCWs in the USA (including 1 HCW infected in Guinea, and 2 HCWs infected during the care of a patient in Texas). Two HCW infections were reported in the week to 28 December: 1 in Montserrado in Liberia, and 1 in Keroune in Guinea.

    24 December 2014 http://apps.who.int/ebolaweb/sitreps...4/20141224.pdf


    Health-care workers
    A total of 666 health-care workers (HCWs) are known to have been infected with EVD up to the end of 21 December, 366 of whom have died (table 6). The total case count includes 2 HCWs in Mali, 11 HCWs infected in Nigeria, 1 HCW infected in Spain while treating an EVD-positive patient, and 3 HCWs in the USA (including a HCW infected in Guinea, and 2 HCWs infected during the care of a patient in Texas). Seven HCW infections were reported in the week to 21 December, 6 in Guinea (including 5 in Coyah and 1 in Kankan) and 1 in Montserrado in Liberia.

    Extensive investigations to determine the source of exposure in each case are being undertaken. Early indications are that a substantial proportion of infections occurred outside the context of Ebola treatment and care centres.

    Country Cases Deaths
    Guinea 139 72
    Liberia* 367 177
    Sierra Leone 143 110
    Total 649 359

    Data are based on official information reported by ministries of health. These numbers are subject to change due to ongoing reclassification, retrospective investigation and availability of laboratory results.*Data are missing for 21 December.

    Extensive investigations to determine the source of exposure in each case are being undertaken. 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 EVD-related facilities. WHO has conducted a review of personal protective equipment (PPE) guidelines for HCWs who provide direct care to patients, and has updated its guidelines in the context of the current EVD 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.

    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.

    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.
