Ebola Virus: Ghana Bans Flights From Nigeria, Other West African Countries



#Ghana has officially banned flights from #Nigeria, Sierra Leone, #Guinea, and #Liberia as a preventive measure against the spreading of the #Ebola virus which is currently ravaging West African countries.

This is coming following the discovery that the country does not have an ebola screening centre at its main airport, contradicting its minister of health, Dr. Agyeman-Mensah who announced last Thursday the setting up of Ebola Screening Centers at the Kotoka International Airport, Accra, the country's sole international airport.

“We have activated a system for screening all passengers especially from countries that have recorded cases,” Dr. Agyeman-Mensah previously told Citi FM.

However, according to Citi FM, a national radio station, investigations at the airport confirm that this is untrue.

Following visits to the airport, Citi News reporters Kojo Agyeman and Magdalene Lanyoh reported that there are no screenings for Ebola symptoms going on there, a finding that directly contradicts the minister's claim that there are screening centers at all entry points into the country.
