NATIONAL PANIC!!! FG Raises Alarm, puts border agencies on red alert over New Ebola outbreak

The Federal government says it has placed all border agencies in the country on red alert following the outbreak of Ebola disease in Guinea Conakry.

The Minister of Health, Osagie Ehanire disclosed this at the weekly press briefing of the Presidential Task Force on COVID-19 in Abuja.

The minister said that the ministry constantly monitors diseases of public health concern around the world and is observing the Ebola disease outbreak in Guinea Conakry with concern.

He said, "Stricter infection prevention and control measures, including personal protective measures, must be taken immediately there is reason to suspect.

"Nigeria is willing to send experienced volunteers from our Centres of Excellence on viral haemorrhagic fever, to support WHO measures to contain Ebola resurgence in our West African sub-region. It is important to protect the sub-region from the catastrophic burden of dealing with two severe diseases of public health concern.

"We shall work with West Africa Health Organisation and WHO on strategies to bring this outbreak under control and shall provide regular updates on preparedness, containment and response measures in due course."
The Chairman of PTF, Boss Mustapha, also said the Federal Government was enhancing surveillance at the nation's borders to respond to recent outbreak of Ebola Virus Disease in neighbouring countries.
