Ebola screening takes off at Lagos international airport, others

THE Federal Government has stepped up screening at major international airports to combat the spread of the Ebola Virus Disease (EVD), the Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria (FAAN) said yesterday.

FAAN said screening of outbound and inbound passengers is ongoing at major international airports.

It added that it has activated existing surveillance equipment used for combating the deadly virus disease, which entered into Nigeria in 2014 through an American-Liberian, Patrick Sawyer.

FAAN’s spokesperson Mrs. Henrietta Yakubu in a chat with The Nation said relevant agencies, including the Port Health Services have been mobilised and are collaborating effectively to ensure the safety of passengers and other airport users.
