Following an outbreak of Ebola in neighboring DRC, Uganda has taken major steps in preventing its possible spread.
“Health authorities at the international entry and exit point at Entebbe International Airport are ensuring that passengers originating from suspected areas and or who exhibit symptoms of the disease are screened and handled in a professional manner”, said Dr. James Eyul, Director Kazuri Medical Services based at the Airport.
An on-spot visit by the Centre for Disease Control (CDC) Director, Dr. Redfield and a team from the US Embassy, led by H. E Ambassador Deborah Malac on Sunday 19th August, 2018 confirmed Uganda’s readiness for the challenge.
