Description

The data set contains information on 937 people (living and dead) who were resident in the households of people who survived Ebola Virus Disease (EVD) in the Kerry Town Ebola Treatment Centre in Western Area Province, Sierra Leone, during the 2014-2016 epidemic. It includes individual and household characteristics, information on exposure levels, symptoms experienced by individuals during the period when the household was affected by EVD, outcomes, possible routes of transmission, and ELISA results from antibody testing for Ebola IgG in oral fluid. Survivor households were chosen because they were more easily contactable through the Save the Children survivors outreach programme: 123 of 152 survivors and their households were interviewed.
