Melissa Kinnaird, deputy director of the Center for Threat Preparedness, part of the West Virginia Bureau of Public Health, gave a brief presentation Tuesday evening to the Legislature's Joint Committee on Health.
Kinnaird said there have been 10 cases of Ebola in the United States, two of which were fatal. There have been no reported cases of the disease in West Virginia. Article Photos EBOLA PREPAREDNESS - Melissa Kinnaird, deputy director of the Center for Threat Preparedness, part of the West Virginia Bureau of Public Health, speaks Tuesday evening to the Legislature's Joint Committee on Health concerning the state's efforts to prepare for a possible outbreak of Ebola, a dangerous disease which has proved fatal to thousands in West Africa. Kinnaird said officials conducted a seminar in October concerning the virus, which has been blamed for more than 5,000 deaths in West Africa. A "tabletop exercise" is planned for December, and Kinnaird said information from that event will be used to help further develop the state's plan of attack. Kinnaird said, at the moment, West Virginia's hospitals are not fully prepared to handle an Ebola patient. "Hospitals are developing plans and training staff," as well as identifying facilities for containment, she said. "They are in the process of getting prepared." However, Kinnaird emphasized no patients identified with Ebola would remain at local hospitals. "No Ebola patient will be treated through the course of the disease in West Virginia," she said. Instead the patient would be transferred to one of several out-of-state treatment centers designated by the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, or CDC. Kinnaird said the CDC is working to establish more treatment centers if needed.
