Algorithm for management of contacts of probable or confirmed 2019-nCoV cases
This algorithm shows the main actions for contacts of probable or confirmed 2019-nCoV cases. Implementation may be modified depending on the risk assessment for individual cases and their contacts by public health authorities.
Algorithm for public health management of cases under investigation for Zika virus infection
The aim of this algorithm is to determine when a person who has been exposed to Zika virus needs to be tested and notified, and when vector control measures should be considered around a case.
Laboratory tests for Zika virus diagnostic
Laboratories should receive clinical and epidemiological information for establishing their investigation strategy, including date of onset of illness, travel history (date and locations), past flaviviral immunisation records and pregnancy status.
Algorithm for Ebola virus disease contact management
The algorithm describes the possible actions for public health authorities for monitoring of contacts of Ebola virus disease case and the actions to take in the event of a contact developing symptoms.
Algorithm for laboratory diagnosis of Ebola virus disease
The algorithm for detection of Ebola virus nucleic acid in a clinical specimen indicates the steps required to consider a case as laboratory confirmed, as per laboratory criteria.
Treatment and vaccines for Ebola virus disease
In the absence of a licensed vaccine to protect against Ebola virus disease (EVD) or a specific drug for treatment of infected patients in the large Ebola virus outbreak that started in December 2013 in Guinea, and subsequently spread to Liberia and Sierra Leone, potential new Ebola vaccines and therapies were reviewed by the World Health Organization (WHO).
In the absence of a licensed vaccine to protect against Ebola virus disease (EVD) or a specific drug for treatment in the large Ebola virus outbreak 2013-2016 in Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone, potential new Ebola vaccines and therapies were reviewed by the World Health Organization (WHO).
