Two Dutch doctors possibly infected with Ebola in Sierra Leone | September 12, 2014

The doctors were treating patients, who later developed Ebola. Doctors were unprotected, like they used to be, treating a lot of malaria patients. No Ebola patients in that time in this region. After the doctors found out they had been treating patients who developed Ebola, they warned the Dutch Embassy in Ghana. They will fly home by a military plane. The clinic has been closed, this closure is another local health disaster.

Director of RIVM (Dutch CDC), Jaap van Dissel, said via NOS National Radio, as long as the doctors don’t show any symptoms, they can’t infect others. After their return they will have a medical check. After that it will be decided what the next step will be. They could stay in isolation at home (less contacts than in a hospital setting) and monitored by telephone. As soon as they develop a fever and/or other symptoms, the next steps from the Ebola protocol will be followed.

More updates later.
