Ghana’s bishops: screen travelers for Ebola

Catholic World News - August 14, 2014

Ghana’s bishops have called upon the nation’s government to screen those entering the country for signs of the Ebola virus, the Catholic Information Service for Africa reported.

Ghana is separated from Liberia, the epicenter of the Ebola outbreak, by Ivory Coast.

“Officials at all entry points should be alert and well equipped to screen people so they can isolate and deal with possible cases,” the bishops said in a statement.

The virus “poses a real danger not only to the families of such people but to the entire nation, and we call on [the] government to help address this situation,” the bishops added.
