Why Do We Need Specialized Facilities to Treat Ebola?

Read Transcript

Caring for Ebola and the Ebola Virus is a very complex process, to both to give the patients the care they need as well as to protect the caregivers while they're doing so. In order to do that, specialized facilities like Almeria in Nebraska have caregivers that have trained for years to be able to do both of these things, provide the care and protect themselves, and they are able to do that very well.

That's why it's very important that we have all our caregivers trained so they know how to protect themselves while providing this life saving care.
