This study considers a deterministic model of Ebola Virus Disease (EVD) incorporating contact tracing and quarantine as interventions. The model analyze the existence and stability of Disease-Free Equilibrium (DFE) and Endemic Equilibrium (EE) states. The local stability of EE is established using centre manifold theorem. The global stability of the two equilibrium states are obtained by constructing the Lyapunov function. Numerical simulations are carried out to examine the impact of contact tracing and quarantine measures on the transmission dynamics of EVD. The result indicates that EVD could be eliminated faster when contact tracing and quarantine measures are implemented together.
