Persistence of Ebola Virus in Various Body Fluids During Convalescence Evidence and Implications for Disease Transmission and Control
Chughtai, A., Barnes, M., and MacIntyre, C. (2016). Persistence of Ebola Virus in Various Body Fluids During Convalescence: Evidence and Implications for Disease Transmission and Control. Epidemiology and Infection. 144(8):1652-1660.
The authors review articles examining persistence of Ebola virus disease in body fluids during the convalescent phase. They note that the virus persists in body fluids following clinical recovery and clearance from the blood and recommend additional study to quantify virus persistence and infectivity after the acute illness phase to better inform infection control guidelines.
