CDC to Host Twitter Chat on Ebola and Infection Control

Article

The recent Ebola virus disease outbreak in West Africa has increased the need for U.S. healthcare facilities to be prepared to handle potential patients with Ebola virus disease. Additionally, two American citizens with Ebola virus disease have been medically evacuated to the United States to receive care in a U.S. hospital.  During this Twitter chat, experts from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) will answer clinicians’ questions on what steps U.S. healthcare facilities can take to prepare for the possibility of caring for a patient with Ebola virus disease.

The Twitter chat will be held on Friday, Aug. 8, 2014 from 2 p.m. to 3 p.,m. ET.  Follow @CDCgov on Twitter, and use the hashtag #CDCchat to participate in the chat.
