As The Week notes, hospitals around the world are prepping their isolation wards in case the Ebola virus (or patients in need) should travel from the current concentration in West Africa.
The region's lack of experience with dealing with Ebola likely contributed to the "unprecedented" spread, experts say, so a hospital's readiness to handle this and other outbreaks could make all the difference.
Even before Mount Sinai Hospital in New York admitted a man with Ebola-like symptoms last week -- he tested negative a few days later -- area hospitals were training their staff to be able to quickly identify the virus and isolate the patient. Equipped with Germany's largest isolation unit, the Berlin-based Charite hospital recently held a test run of its infectious disease-handling protocols. As the death toll from the worst ever outbreak of the highly contagious disease has climbed to 1,013 since it was discovered in remote southeastern Guinea in March, medical workers around the world are prepping and researching equipment and techniques used to contain infectious diseases.
