Enterprise Television- Ebola Alert: FAAN, Port Health Deploy Personnel to Screen Passengers at Airports

Following the directive of the Federal Government to its agencies to immediately commence screening of travellers across borders over the outbreak of Ebola in Republic of Congo, the Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria (FAAN) and Port Health at the Murtala Muhammed International Airport (MMIA), Lagos have deployed their personnel to arrival halls at the airport.

FAAN also reassured passengers and other airport users of safety across its network of airports as a result of the outbreak.

A statement by Mrs. Henrietta Yakubu noted that since the first recorded case of the virus in Nigeria, through an American-Liberian, Patrick Sawyer, the agency had not relaxed its surveillance at the airports to forestall any re-occurrence.
