Using Barrier Techniques to Prevent Ebola

Ebola prevention focuses on avoiding direct contact with those infected with the virus and their body fluid because there is no currently licensed vaccine. If someone with Ebola hemorrhagic fever dies, avoiding direct contact with their body may help prevent spreading the infection.
 
Barrier techniques can help prevent transmission of Ebola in a hospital setting. These techniques include:
 
  • Isolating people with Ebola from unprotected people
  • Using infection-control measures, including complete sterilization of equipment
  • Wearing protective clothing, such as masks, gowns, gloves, and goggles.

This picture shows bedridden patients in a Sudanese hospital during the country's 1976 outbreak. In 1976, Dr. Joe McCormick and Dr. Roy Baron, along with a number of other investigators, were sent to Nzara to investigate the region's Ebola outbreak.
 
Early cases showed that the virus began in the Nzara Cotton Manufacturing Factory. From there, it spread through the town of Nzara, and then went east to the town of Maridi. Two hundred eighty-four people in Sudan were infected with the Ebola virus, and 117 died.
