Containment

· Suspected cases should be isolated from other patients and strict barrier nursing techniques practised.

· All hospital personnel should be briefed on the nature of the disease and its routes of transmission. Particular emphasis should be placed on ensuring that high-risk procedures such as the placing of intravenous lines and the handling of blood, secretions, catheters and suction devices are carried out under barrier nursing conditions. Hospital staff should have individual gowns, gloves and masks. Gloves and masks must not be reused unless disinfected.

· Patients who die from the disease should be promptly buried or cremated.
