More than 90% of health care workers at 2 facilities in Ghana were not adequately trained to handle suspected Ebola Virus Disease (EVD) cases when researchers interviewed them in late 2015, says a new BioMed Central study.

Researchers administered a questionnaire—adapted from WHO and CDC Ebola preparedness checklists—to 101 health care workers. Only 26% of participants believed their facilities were properly equipped to handle EVD, and only 9% were able to identify the disinfectant to use after patient contact. Fewer than half of the workers were willing to attend to a patient who might have EVD.
