Minister Dr. Jallah

Health Minister Dr. Wilhelmina Jallah has clarified that there is no confirmed case of Ebola in the country.

Minister Jallah however said the Ministry is currently monitoring a 26 year old female who has come down with high fever and malaria after arriving from Guinea on February 12.

Minister Jallah said a local clinic where the 26 year old had gone for treatment raised the alarm because of her travel history from Nzerekore, Guinea.

The Health Minister told ELBC Thursday that the patient has undergone both corona and Ebola tests and results will be out later this afternoon.

She said though the patient is showing symptoms of Corona, Ebola test was necessary owing to her travel from Guinea recently.

She described the situation as an alert, noting that the public will be given up-to-date information on every step to avoid the spread of false information.

Minister Jallah also called on the public not to panic but remain on high alert and take the necessary precaution.
