Peoples Digest Online- The Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria (FAAN) has reinstated screening points and detecting machines at the airport to forestall the resurgence of Ebola outbreak in Nigeria. The measure was triggered by the outbreak of Ebola in the Democratic Republic of Congo.
FAAN’s acting General Manager, Corporate Affairs, Mrs Henrietta Yakubu, assured passengers and airport users of safety at the nation’s airports. She said all measures adopted in 2014 to curtail the dreaded virus is very much in place and has been fortified. It would be recalled that Ebola was introduced to Nigeria in July 2014 by a Liberian diplomat, Patrick Sawyer. Yakubu said there is no outbreak of Ebola in Nigeria or at any Nigerian airport, urging passengers and airport users to go about their business activities without fear.
