Ebola Virus Disease and CliniciansThe current Ebola virus disease (EVD) outbreak that has been impacting Western Africa is the largest on record. The countries of Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone are the hardest hit, though the virus has spread to other countries as well, including the United States. Patients with EVD generally have abrupt onset of fever and symptoms typically 8 to12 days after exposure (incubation period for current outbreak has a mean of approximately 9 to 11 days). Initial signs and symptoms are nonspecific and may include fever, chills, myalgias, and malaise. Due to these nonspecific symptoms, particularly early in the course, EVD can often be confused with other more common infectious diseases such as malaria, typhoid fever, meningococcemia, and other bacterial infections (e.g., pneumonia).

The New Hampshire Department of Health and Human Services, especially its Division of Public Health Services, is working with all healthcare organizations and physicians in the State as well as other partners to help ensure all those involved have correct and up-to-date information about this outbreak.
