Kilmarx, P., Clarke, K., Dietz, P., et al. (2014). Ebola Virus Disease in Health Care Workers Sierra Leone, 2014. Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report. 63(49):1168-1171.
The authors studied infection in healthcare workers and found that the incidence of infection peaked in August 2014. The authors also found that infected healthcare workers were less likely to have attended a funeral and more likely to have had contact with an Ebola positive patient in the month prior to symptom onset. They then stress the importance of infection control and protecting the health workforce.
