The threat of Ebola cases in America has highlighted the need for rigid requirements for the use of PPE by healthcare workers to prevent the spread of this deadly disease. Since there are no vaccines, proper use of effective PPE is the only way to stop the spread of Ebola. (For more information, see here)
