<p class="MsoPlainText">Overview:<o:p></o:p></p>
<p class="MsoPlainText">The 2014 Ebola epidemic is the largest in history, affecting multiple countries in West Africa.  A small number of patients with Ebola virus disease (EVD) have been medically evacuated from West Africa to receive care in U.S. hospitals. 
 The first imported case of Ebola was diagnosed in the United States in a person who had traveled from West Africa to Dallas, Texas and two secondary Ebola cases in healthcare workers have been identified as of October 14, 2014. CDC and our partners are taking
 precautions to prevent the spread of Ebola by sharing information with clinicians who may provide care for patients with EVD.  During this COCA Call, clinicians will learn the clinical features and complications associated with Ebola and recommendations from
 Emory University Hospital and the University of Nebraska Medical Center on clinical management of patients with EVD.<o:p></o:p></p>
