Comprehensive resources regarding the Ebola outbreak are available on a dedicated website from International SOS - www.internationalsos.com/ebola.

The information includes advice for individuals, travel precautions, latest updates and breaking news. The Ebola resources are downloadable and available free of charge.

Among the site’s features are:

• Facts about transmission, symptoms, prevention, vaccines, treatment and case definitions
• Educational materials, including videos, fact sheets and infographics
• Travel advice 
• Charts regarding affected countries

The Ebola virus has been identified in a patient who travelled from Liberia and who is now in a Dallas hospital. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention officials have assured the public the incident will be contained. 

While the largest-ever Ebola outbreak continues in several countries in West Africa, ongoing vigilance for further imported cases is required.    

International SOS has just released a new video titled “Ebola: What business travellers need to know”. This is also available via www.internationalsos.com/ebola - click on the Education Materials section.

Experts from International SOS are available for media interviews.
