Recorded in November 2014, Dr. Vivian Vega presents an update on the 2014-2016 West African Ebola outbreak adapted for both healthcare workers and patients. She speaks about the epidemiology, clinical manifestations and the effect of the outbreak on other public health issues such as malaria and TB. She also talks about the implications of the outbreak in the global community, the possibility of pandemic spread, and reviews four patients diagnosed with Ebola in the United States. Finally, Dr. Vega discusses risk assessment for patients exposed to the virus as well as its diagnosis and management. As the last major global outbreak, a look back to 2014 adds some insight into how we are managing the current Coronavirus pandemic.
