In continuing news:

As potential exposure increases in the U.S. and two Dallas nurses who treated Liberian patient Thomas Eric Duncan have caught the disease, the Insurance Information Institute (III) has issued a report with updated Ebola facts and figures and its analysis on comp effects. The III states that, “The main effect on the Property/Casualty insurance industry would likely be on companies writing Workers’ Compensation insurance because health-care workers could be most directly exposed…it is unlikely that many workers in the main affected African countries have workers compensation-type coverages; the latest Swiss Re report indicates that the level of premiums per capita for all non-life insurance coverages combined (not just Workers Compensation) in the three most-affected countries is so low as to not be listed.”
