Prof. Isaac Adewole, Minister of health, has said the Federal Government is ready to ensure the recent outbreak of Ebola virus in Congo does not spread to Nigeria.
Adewole told PUNCH in a recent interview that the government has the situation under control, while stating that passengers are being screened at International airports.
“We have also invited representatives from the Ministry of Information and Culture so that we have a broad-based committee to handle response. We have also alerted the commissioners of health to manage any form of haemorrhagic fever with the seriousness it deserves.
“I have advised them to be careful when there is a case of any fever that is not malaria and not responding within 48 hours. So, I think we are on top of the situation.”
