An Oct. 3 TIME article discusses the high death rate for local healthcare workers in West Africa who are treating patients infected with the Ebola virus disease. According to the article, the high rate may be due, in part, to a lack of resources that prevent African healthcare workers — who form the bulk of the Ebola aid teams in the region — from being evacuated to Europe or the U.S. for treatment. This is in contrast to the medical evacuation systems in place for Western healthcare workers.
“While one would think that healthcare workers, of all people, would be less likely to succumb to Ebola if they contracted the virus, the fatality rate of Ebola-infected healthcare workers is a stunning 57%, according to WHO’s (the World Health Organization) most recent data,” the article stated.
