Rwanda Issues Travel Ban, DRC Confirms Cases
Travellers from Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone will not be allowed into the country as the deadly Ebola virus continues to ravage the three West African states.
The same also goes for any person found to have a fever of 37.5 degrees Celsius.
The order, issued yesterday by the Ministry of Health, also stated that anyone who has travelled to the three countries in the last 22 days will be stopped from entering Rwanda by any means of transport.
“An exception is only provided for passengers with special authorisation signed by the Minister for Health of the Republic of Rwanda,” reads part of the statement issued by the ministry.
The latest instructions follow reports of confirmation of a different strain of Ebola in DR Congo.
