West African Ebola Outbreak

The Ebola outbreak in West Africa has worsened, claiming more victims in Sierra Leone, Liberia, and Guinea. Today, the WHO announced that it will work towards drafting a $100m emergency response plan with the leaders of these nations. The WHO's response can be read in this article from the BBC. However, as noted in the BBC article mentioned above, Nigeria is taking appropriate measures, such as monitoring the temperature of incoming airline passengers, in order to prevent the spread or influx of the viral disease. In addition, the government has placed health facilities on alert, and has entirely banned flights from Liberia and Sierra Leone. Rest assured, CGH partners are vigilant and are taking precautions in their work at various international sites. The University informed us in recent correspondence that "the University Health Service continues to function and we are educating all to be alert and report all suspicious ailment."
