EBOLA: At the conference, Public Health England gave a presentation on Ebola which provides valuable information in a concise format. It’s content is applicable worldwide and can be read on the following link:

Ebola – UKMPA Nov 2014

A video of the presentation is on the home page of the  UKMPA website

It’s well worth watching since it deals with all the issues clearly & concisely
