To date, 19 healthcare workers have been infected during this outbreak, and 3 have died.In its latest situation report on the Ebola virus disease (EVD) outbreak, the World Health Organization (WHO) said yesterday that all healthcare personnel infections have occurred from exposure outside the healthcare setting.
