worldhealthorganization WHO epidemiologists mentor local surveillance teams in #SierraLeone as they sift through stacks of #Ebola case investigation forms. They are comparing information in the database with the hardcopies in order to verify the data, for example: catch missed entries, misspellings, duplicates, etc.
Correct data drives proper response activities. It signals hotspots – areas with active transmission - it shows whether numbers of cases are increasing or decreasing, if the epidemic has peaked, it identifies groups of the population that are being disproportionately affected (e.g., children, elderly) and can highlight many other indicators.

worldhealthorganization “I feel proud to see that some of the people I cared for in the treatment centre during this [#Ebola] outbreak survived. Despite the fact that so many died including some of my own colleagues, seeing the few survivors is an assurance that the risk we the health workers have been taking did not go in vain”

worldhealthorganization “I tested positive [for #Ebola] after caring for my #pregnant daughter, a nurse - who later died at the hospital. So when I was informed that I was positive I was too terrified to go to the treatment centre because of the negative rumours about the centre and health practitioners working there. But I proved all to be wrong and was very lucky to have received early treatment which made me survived.”
