NCDC issues Strong Ebola warning to Nigerians

The Nigeria Centre for Disease Control and Prevention has (NCDC) said that Nigeria is at high risk of Ebola virus disease following the outbreak of the disease in Uganda.

The NCDC, in a release on Tuesday, signed by its Director-General, Dr Ifedayo Adetifa, stated that it was on high alert, adding that “the likelihood of importation of the disease to Nigeria is high due to the increased air travel between Nigeria and Uganda, especially through Kenya’s Nairobi airport, a regional transport hub, and other neighbouring countries that share a direct border with Uganda.

According to the NCDC, the ongoing outbreak of Ebola virus disease was caused by the Sudan strain of the Ebola virus in Uganda as declared on September 20, 2022.
