The book fills an important gap between large texts covering not only Ebola but other hemorrhagic fever viruses and brief pamphlet-style publications on the public health aspects of the infection. In light of the recent large outbreak in West Africa, this book is a part of the developing foundation needed to deal with emerging diseases. Features: — Summarizes timely practical information on Ebola for clinicians in light of the recent outbreaks in Africa — Documents that Ebola is likely to remain an issue for the medical profession, public health authorities and disaster response planners — Includes both basic science information and practical issues of diagnosis, management and containment — Presents detailed exercises to prepare healthcare providers for the challenges of caring for patients with proven or suspected Ebola infection — Recommends usable responses to potential bioterrorism related to Ebola virus ------------- Damnant quod non intellegunt!
