No Ebola patients would be treated through the course of the disease in West Virginia, said Melissa Kinnaird, deputy director of the West Virginia Center for Threat Preparedness. They would be transferred to one of the designated [hospitals in Maryland, Nebraska or Atlanta].
Kinnaird said representatives of numerous state agencies continue to meet and talk about Ebola, even though no patients are being treated for the virus anywhere in the U.S. Ten patients were treated for Ebola in recent months, and all but two survived, Kinnaird told state lawmakers during Tuesdays joint House-Senate health committee meeting.
West Virginia hospitals also havent stopped fine-tuning response plans, she said.
Hospitals are developing plans to make sure their staff are trained, Kinnaird said. There are in the process of getting prepared.
United Nations health officials are cautiously optimistic that the Ebola outbreak in western Africa will end next year, she said. The Centers for Disease Control has reported a decrease in new Ebola cases in Liberia.

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.
