The Federal Ministry of health has debunked reports circulating in the social media that there have been an outbreak of the deadly Ebola Virus in Nigeria.
Permanent Secretary, Federal Ministry of Health, Mr. Abdullaziz Mashi Abdullahi stated this on Wednesday in Abuja, where he appealed to Nigerians to disregard such news and go about their normal businesses without any form of panic.
He also assured that since the reports of outbreak of EVD in the Democratic Republic of Congo, heightened surveillance had been on-going at the various points of entry by officials of the Port Health Services division of the Ministry to prevent importation into Nigeria.
To this effect, he said every sick passenger has been properly screened and ‘’I can say categorically that none of the patients screened has tested positive for Ebola or any deadly disease.’’
