The Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria has declared that all measures adopted in 2014 to curtail the spread of the dreaded Ebola virus at airports across the country had been adequately fortified.
It also assured passengers and other users of their safety at the nation’s airports following the World Health Organization’s recent announcement on the outbreak of Ebola in the Democratic Republic of Congo.
The Acting General Manager, Corporate Affairs, FAAN, Mrs. Henrietta Yakubu, said adequate measures had been put in place to prevent the re-occurrence of the Ebola outbreak in Nigeria.
It was gathered that additional personnel, thermal scanners and sanitisers were deployed in the country’s two major international airports by the Federal Government as part of measures to forestall another round of Ebola outbreak in Nigeria.
Mrs Yakubu said Ebola screening points and detecting machines have been fully reinstated at the airports, adding that the authority was also collaborating with the Federal Ministry of Health, through the Port Health Service, to reactivate the Ebola awareness and sensitisation campaign.
While stating that there was no outbreak of Ebola in the country, Yakubu implore passengers and airport users to go about their business activities without fear.
