Ethiopia Strengthens Measures to Prevent Spread of Ebola

Ethiopian Health Minister Amir Aman has announced Wednesday that the African nation”s government is strengthening health and hygiene measures and epidemiological controls at its borders to prevent the spread of Ebola.

For several days we have been working hard at the border posts and territories that we share with the brother countries of Somaliland, Sudan and Southern Sudan, said the Minister during a press conference held Wednesday in Addis Ababa.

Although these are priority issues, he stressed, we alert all Ethiopians in each of the nation’s regions, and especially those traveling to and from Goma, the Congolese city to which Ethiopian Airlines flies seven days a week.

Earlier, the Ministry reissued last week’s statement from the World Health Organization, which calls a global emergency the Ebola outbreak that began a year ago, causing 1,500 deaths in just two provinces of eastern Democratic Republic of Congo.

He said the Ethiopian government has 250 million birr (about nine million dollars) intended for prevention measures and to reinforce protocols to prevent the spread of Ebola in that territory of the so-called Horn of Africa.
