A hospital outbreak of haemorrhagic fever took place in Dubai in November, 1979. The index case died in the casualty department shortly after admission. There were five secondary cases among hospital staff, two of whom died. When, 3 months after this outbreak, a patient with symptoms characteristic of haemorrhagic fever was admitted, immediate barrier nursing prevented further secondary cases.
