The Federal government of Nigeria has activated surveillance activities cross the country to detect and prevent any outbreak of the disease in the Democratic Republic of Congo.

The Federal government had sent letters of alert to all states in Nigeria to enhance surveillance activities with an advisory note for the general public.

Minister of Health, Prof Isaac Adewole in Abuja, who disclosed this yesterday in Abuja, noted that the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control is currently coordinating a national working group that is assessing and managing the risk of Ebola to Nigeria.He observed that the ministry is in close communication with partners including the World Health Organisation, who are in Congo to monitor and respond to the situation adding that government has plan B to protect the country.

Adewole noted that the Port Health services unit has been placed on red-alert and will heighten screening measures at ports of entry.Adewole stated that government had strengthened the nation’s health security infrastructur e to effectively prevent, detect and respond to infectious diseases including Ebola.

The move was on the heels of a fresh outbreak of Ebola in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC).FAAN, however, re-assured passengers and other airport users of safety across its network of airports.General Manager, Corporate Affairs of FAAN, Henrietta Yakubu, noted that since the first recorded case of the virus in Nigeria, through an American-Liberian, Patrick Sawyer, the authority has not relaxed its surveillance at the airports to forestall any re-occurrence.

    I simply wanted to appreciate you all over again. I’m not certain what I would’ve undertaken without the tips documented by you over such a area. It previously was a real fearsome concern in my opinion, however , being able to see the very specialised strategy you dealt with it forced me to cry with gladness. Now i’m happy for the guidance and wish you are aware of a powerful job your are getting into teaching other individuals thru your web page. More than likely you have never encountered any of us.

    I must express my thanks to this writer for rescuing me from such a dilemma. Right after searching throughout the the net and finding tips which were not powerful, I was thinking my entire life was over. Being alive devoid of the solutions to the problems you’ve fixed by way of your entire website is a serious case, and the ones that would have in a wrong way damaged my career if I hadn’t encountered your website. Your good expertise and kindness in maneuvering almost everything was priceless. I don’t know what I would’ve done if I had not come across such a thing like this. I can at this time look ahead to my future. Thanks so much for the high quality and effective guide. I won’t think twice to suggest your site to anybody who should get support on this matter.
