Via Vanguard: Ebola outbreak: India, Greece advice nationals not to travel to Nigeria, others. Excerpt:
Greece and India have warned their citizens to avoid non-essential travels to Nigeria, Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone because of the outbreak of Ebola virus in these west African countries.
A statement issued by the Greek Health Ministry said the recommendation was after a meeting with the Hellenic Center of Disease Control and Prevention (KEELPNO).
The ministry said the country would take “precautionary measures” at ports and other entry points to monitor people coming into the country.
“Our country has a low level of risk in terms of the virus entering the country.
“But it is deemed appropriate to issue strict travel instructions to the public and to boost the level of preparedness at the entry gates to the country,” the ministry’s statement said.
Greece is just the latest among countries advising travellers to cancel trips to countries affected by the virus.
Similarly, India Union’s Health Minister, Dr Harsh Vardhan, was reported as saying that the country had taken precautionary steps to deal with any case of the virus.
In a statement obtained by the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Abuja, Vardhan recommended that non-essential travel to Guinea, Liberia, Sierra Leone and Nigeria be deferred.
