Government issues advisory following outbreak of Ebola in Congo

The government has this evening issued an alert over the deadly Ebola virus following an outbreak of the killer disease in the Democratic Republic of Congo.

In the advisory issued Wednesday, the Ministry of Health has ordered the screening of all visitors entering the country through the Jomo Kenyatta International Airport as well as the Busia and Malaba border points.

The government has also intensified its surveillance at all entry points to ensure the disease does not find its way into the country even as a Polio vaccination campaign targeting children below the age of 5 years kicked off in 12 counties and the Kakuma and Dadaab refugee camp.
