Health Issues

​​A growing outbreak of Ebola virus disease in West Africa has infected more than 1,300 people, including two American health care providers who came back to the U.S. for treatment. The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention considers Ebola to pose little risk to people in the U.S. at this time.

Infectious disease specialist Yvonne Maldonado, MD, FAAP, joins the Healthy Children show on RadioMD to explain the Ebola virus, what people in the U.S. need to know, and how hospitals here are prepared to handle a highly contagious virus.
