Dealing With Ebola Infected Corpses


Recommended Posts

I was going to post the article, but it is better suited for "The Edge" than here. But, the knowledge that the information is out there is appropriate here.





Many people who have succumbed to Ebola have contracted the disease from handling and disposal of the corpses of loved ones. There is much information out there of how to avoid catching Ebola, setting up a sick room etc, but there is little mention of disposal of infected corpses.


In a national crisis expert teams will be dispatched to collect corpses, but if they are overwhelmed the corpse needs to be dealt with before more infection occurs. In a really extreme situation help may not be forthcoming, and that’s what this article is about.


Some may find the following upsetting and rather dispassionate, and for that I’m sorry, but this article isn’t about feelings and grieving, it’s about staying alive.









If Ebola does make it out of Africa all precautions need to be taken to prevent it’s spread. Having said that there will be deaths, we all know this. Hopefully the authorities will not be overwhelmed but if they are the steps outlined above (follow link to referred article for the details) will massively reduce your chances of contracting the disease from handling a dead body.

Take Care
