Gov't sets up Ebola isolation center at Kotoka airport

The government has set up an isolation center 300 meters away from the Kotoka International Airport to cater for any passenger who arrives at the airport showing signs of the deadly Ebola disease.
This is one of the measures it has taken to prevent Ebola virus from reaching Ghana.
Four ambulances have also been put on stand-by to carry seriously ill patients to the nearest referral point, the 37 Military Hospital.
These measures came to the force on Friday, August 15 when an Ebola preparedness exercise was conducted for health workers at the country’s only international airport.
The workers wore Ebola protective gear and were taught how to use the digital thermometers to check the temperatures of incoming passengers as part of a dry-run exercise.
Passengers who reported temperatures above 37 Degree Celsius will be quarantined at the Center, which takes six people at a time but is expandable to take an additional two.
