Ebola Contingency Scenario

This scenario report considers the 2014 Ebola outbreak in West Africa and its possible impacts on the region as well as the United States and Europe. 

Overview

It is not a prediction or an expected outcome but is a ‘contingency’ scenario to help businesses put in place preparedness measures to improve their resilience to disruption from future infectious disease epidemics. 

This report considers the status of the outbreak at the time of publication, the future outlook of the epidemic and economic disruption caused by previous infectious disease outbreaks. It further considers the economic impacts of an Ebola Contingency Scenario and the necessity for businesses to have contingency plans for potential infectious disease outbreaks.
