What I’m reading about Ebola today:

Possible second Ebola case in Dallas,” which may, of course, be related to “Experts question two-day delay in admitting Texas Ebola patient.” And now we learn that the “Ebola patient told hospital he had been to Liberia,” as well make use of a helpful interactive graphic on how contact tracing works. (Edited to add that last link.)

BioWorld Today has compiled a list of resources and stories about Ebola: “Special Report: The Push to Contain Ebola Virus.”

The World Health Organization has a page for Ebola situation assessments that it says will be updated Wednesday afternoon with information about a clinical trial of a vaccine.

WHO’s travel and transport risk assessment: Recommendations for public health authorities and transport sector.

The Center for Infectious Disease Research and Policy has updated its – very comprehensive –  Ebola resource list, a “compilation of links to the latest updates, graphs, maps, public health agency guidelines, and Twitter feeds covering Ebola virus disease.”

This has been widely tweeted but in case you missed it, “Ebola Overwhelming West Africa Communities.”

Video: ABC News’  Dr. Richard Besser gives a tour of the operations inside a treatment facility in Monrovia.

And don’t forget the list of resources I shared yesterday afternoon: Resources for covering Ebola following Texas patient’s diagnosis.
