  • The Ministry of Health has cautioned Kenyans to be on high alert after  Uganda reported Ebola Virus Disease outbreak.

    In a statement, Health Cabinet Secretary Mutahi Kagwe noted that Kenya’s close proximity with Uganda and the flurry of activity between the two countries put Kenyans at risk hence the need to be cautious.

    Consequently, Kenyans across the 47 counties were advised to watch out for symptoms related to the deadly disease such as vomiting, diarrhea, abdominal pains, headache sore throat among other.

    In view of this information, Kagwe asked health officials to be vigilant and enhance surveillance, especially at the border, activate rapid response teams to support the identification of any suspected cases and make prompt reporting.

    “Screening of at-risk populations including travellers, truck drivers, bush meat handlers and health care workers should be prioritised,” red the advisory in part.
