Prime Minister Dr. Ralph Gonsalves – Ebola Meeting

The National Surveillance Committee in the Ministry of Health Wellness and the Environment will be meeting with local stakeholders today to discuss the outbreak of Ebola in West Africa.
Prime Minister Dr. Ralph Gonsalves disclosed during a News Conference yesterday that the Committee was meeting yesterday and would convene another meeting involving stakeholders today.

The BBC says the current outbreak of Ebola is the worst ever, and is centred on Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone, killing 887 people.

Two cases have also been diagnosed in Nigeria.
The Ebola virus spreads by contact with infected blood and bodily fluids – and touching the body of someone who has died of Ebola is particularly dangerous.
