Travelers from Liberia are at extremely low risk of exposure
to Ebola at this time. For more than two
months, there have been no cases of Ebola virus disease in Liberia. On May 9, 2015, the World Health Organization
(WHO) declared the end of the EVD outbreak in Liberia after 42 days had passed
since the last EVD patient was buried.
It has been more than three months since the last case in the border
regions between Liberia, Sierra Leone, and Guinea.
The outbreak is affecting multiple countries in West Africa and CDC has confirmed the first travel-associated case of Ebola to be diagnosed in the United States. About half of the people who have gotten Ebola in this outbreak have died.
Although the risk of Ebola spreading in the United States is very low, CDC and its partners are taking actions to prevent this from happening.
Enterovirus D68 (EV-D68) is one of more than 100 non-polio enteroviruses. This virus was first identified in California in 1962.
Since its inception in 2002, the Medical Reserve Corps (MRC) has served to improve the health, safety, and resilience of the nation. The Office of the Surgeon General, and particularly the Division of the Civilian Volunteer Medical Reserve Corps (DCVMRC), has shared and highlighted information about the MRC network through a variety of reports, presentations, and briefings over the years. Now we are pleased to support the National Association of County and City Health Officials (NACCHO) and its work to produce this first Network Profile of the Medical Reserve Corps.
