Intelink’s Ebola Resource Digest

Intelink, the United States Intelligence Community’s group of secure intranets, maintains a blog publication of multiple open-source unclassified articles, documents, maps, and directives relating to the current Ebola Virus Disease (EVD) outbreak. This publication is the Intelink Ebola Digest. Updates have occurred weekly since September 8, 2014. Sources in the digest are from open, unclassified resources. The content of the article links has not been altered, and is not an evaluated intelligence product. The digest provides links to:

  • Mapping Resources
  • Logistics Resources
  • Ebola Collaboration
  • Published Research and Academic Materials
  • Education and Prevention
  • Health Agencies working on the Ebola Contagion
  • Involvement of Non-profit Organizations
  • Recommended Guidelines from the World Health Organization and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention

As of October 16, 2014, nearly 10,000 cases of EVD had been reported, and more than 4,500 cases were fatal. With a near 50% mortality rate, EVD has gripped the public in fear of contracting the disease. By learning more about EVD (origins, transmission, symptoms) and learning more about this outbreak (location, concentration, etc.), individuals can reduce this fear and increase understanding of how to address this international public health phenomenon.
