Just in case you get contaminated which is very unlikely even though this Ebola outbreak is the largest that we have ever seen it is important to know & calculate how much are those bill going to be for whoever needs to pay them.
In the middle of the summer 2014, we have seen the spread of Ebola from Liberia, Guinea, Sierra Leona and Spain & the USA however, many questions are still not really clear for many. Measures have been taken by the World Health Organization (WHO) and emergency state has been declared in different nations across the globe in order to avoid or prevent the spread any further.
But something that is really unclear for many people are things, like why is it so bad, how can a person get contaminated with it etc. but we are going to talk about a topic that is usually left behind.
What is the cost of an Ebola treatment and why?
Before figures can suddenly be thrown on the paper it is important to check some factors such as the costs on care “I’d say that $8,000 per day figure is the bare minimum,” says NerdWallet health care pricing expert Andrew Fitch. But why is so expensive?
The cost of isolating the patients and keeping them into quarantine in order to avoid the vvirus to spread more can cost around a total of $15,000
The cost of labour is another factor which must be taken into account here due the amounts of precautions taken in order to treat the patients. Around 50 people can be needed to treat one single patient.
