Ebola Virus Outbreak in West Africa
The West African Ebola virus (EV) outbreak, which began in December 2013, is currently affecting three countries:
Sierre Leone, Liberia and Guinea. The World Health Organisation has announced a cumulative total of 1201 cases of Ebola virus disease (EVD) with 672 deaths as of 23 July 2014. There has been one probable case in Nigeria, but the case was a Liberian man who was in transit.
There have been no cases imported to South Africa during this outbreak.
EV is introduced into the human population through close contact with the blood, secretions, organs or other bodily fluids of infected animals. EV then spreads in the community through human-to-human transmission. Infection results from close contact with an infected person.
Lancet Laboratories operates in most provinces throughout South Africa, including Gauteng, KwaZulu-Natal, Limpopo, Mpumalanga and the North West. Outside Lancet’s operational zones, we direct clients to other reputable laboratories and pathology services. Locate your nearest Lancet Laboratory.
