Doshi, R., Hoff, N., Bratcher, A., et al. (2020). Risk Factors for Ebola Exposure in Health Care Workers in Boende, Tshuapa Province, Democratic Republic of the Congo. The Journal of Infectious Diseases.
This study aimed to better understand the prevalence and risk factors associated with subclinical and paucisymptomatic Ebola virus disease in healthcare workers. Serologic studies from healthcare workers caring for EVD patients document the marked effects of PPE use but also significant seropositivity in the absence of any clinical disease, consistent with other studies that point to asymptomatic seroconversion in healthcare workers.
