WAHO calls for regional preparedness as Ebola hits DR Congo

BANJUL Gambia (Xinhua) -- Director General of West African Health Organization (WAHO) Stanley Okolo on Monday called on the regional countries to remain alert as the Ebola epidemic resurfaced in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC).

“This is a wake-up call on all member countries to always remain alert and prepared,” he said in a press release in Banjul.

Okolo said WAHO has already sent information to the countries reminding them of the international disease surveillance records and regulations that they should use.

“We have also helped some of the countries in terms of support for monitoring travelers at borders who are coming in from the DRC,” he said.

WAHO liaison officers representing the regional countries are currently discussing health problems including disease surveillance and insufficient health care budgeting in Banjul ahead of the 19th Ordinary Assembly of ECOWAS Ministers on Tuesday, when key decisions will be adopted.
