Suit protects against Ebola, future epidemics

Date:20 April 2016 Author: Nikky Knijf Tags:, , , ,

Following the Ebola outbreak in Western Africa, a suit has been developed to protect health workers on the front lines. A joint operation between researchers at the École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL) and Geneva University Hospitals has developed a comfortable, reusable and less expensive one-piece hermetically sealed suit.

The EPFL will be presenting the suit to the WHO and the public at the Geneva Health Forum this week.
