Prevention of Marburg virus:
Due to our limited knowledge of the disease, preventive measures against transmission from
the original animal host have not yet been established. Measures for prevention of
secondary transmission are similar to those used for other hemorrhagic fevers. If a
patient is either suspected or confirmed to have Marburg hemorrhagic fever, barrier nursing techniques should be used to prevent direct
physical contact with the patient. These precautions include wearing of protective gowns,
gloves, and masks; placing the infected individual in strict isolation; and sterilization
or proper disposal of needles, equipment, and patient excretions. (Source: excerpt from Marburg Hemorrhagic Fever: DVRD)
