Project 2: Morphology
1. Passage:
The first team, made up of Army, Navy and Air Force personnel, completed training on
Tuesday and included 20 critical care and inpatient nurses, five physicians and five infection
control specialists who would instruct civilian health care workers in infectious disease
protocols.
The team was trained to identify the signs and symptoms of Ebola, the virus' transmission
and containment. They practiced donning protective equipment and learned to care properly for
Ebola patients as well as teach others to provide treatment.
While recent reports have presented some good news on the Ebola front that Liberia, the
hardest-hit country, may be experiencing fewer cases the Centers for Disease Control and
Prevention in late September estimated that without global intervention in West Africa, the
number of cases could increase to 1.4 million.
For countries outside the Ebola-affected region, the forecast is less dire but not negligible,
since an increase in cases in Africa would boost the likelihood of the virus spreading through
travel.
