US Government Donates Ebola Screening Equipment To Lagos Airport

This weekend, The Murtala Muhammed International Airport, Lagos,  got additional Ebola Virus Disease (EVD) screening equipment from the United States Government to boost screening capacity at the airport. The equipment is worth 5,000 US Dollars, Vanguard reports.

Making the donation at the Conference Room of the airport, the US Consul-General in Nigeria, Jeffrey Hawkins expressed satisfaction with the timely response of the Nigerian Government to the contagious disease since its importation into the country by Patrick Sawyer, a Liberian a month ago.

The equipment known as infrared thermometers or non-contact thermometers is a portable hand held equipment that has the ability to measure body temperature of in- bound and out- bound passengers for possible Ebola symptoms from a distance.

$5,000 only?? Please o!! I hope all Airports and boarder posts around the country, will be equipped, reports have it that all regions of Liberia have been hit by ebola. With our "Miracle" peddlers still advertising their "healing" we should expect more people flocking into the country, we were lucky the first time thanks to Dr, Ameyo and co, we might not get away with tempting fate a second time o!! 1.9bn should be used wisely...

Keep the conversation going, please drop a comment.
