MS Department of Health activates 24-hour Ebola hotline

SOUTH MISSISSIPPI (WLOX) -

With the recent Ebola scare sweeping the United States, the Mississippi Department of Health has activated a 24-hour Ebola Hotline. The hotline number is 1-877-222-9358.

Officials tell us the hotline is available for general Ebola information, and any case-specific calls will be transferred to health officials when necessary.

“While it's highly unlikely that we will see a case of Ebola here in Mississippi, we continue to work with our healthcare partners to make sure we're prepared for a possible case, should one occur,” said MSDH State Epidemiologist Dr. Thomas Dobbs. “We realize Ebola is still an issue of great concern to Mississippians, and this hotline should help answer general questions about the disease to those who are interested.”
