Foreigners giving false Ebola impression of Kenya

18 August 2014, 13:50 Victor Tinto

Nairobi - Health Cabinet Secretary James Macharia says that foreigners are giving a false impression of Ebola in the country after wearing face masks on arrival into the country.

Some foreigners were seen arriving in the country wearing face masks to protect themselves from apparent Ebola infection over the weekend, raising concern about the country's state of play.

But Macharia, speaking in his office Monday, insisted that there was no need for panic as regards the virus.

" There is no Ebola in Kenya. You can take that as an assurance from me, he said.

" The pictures we saw of people wearing masks are wrong and are meant to give a wrong impression about what is going on in the country, he added.

Macharia insisted that the country had taken the correct measures to ensure that the virus does not get into the country.

" We have taken charge of the situation in every way possible and have ensured that all entry points into the country are well monitored, he added.

He also lauded Kenya Airways' decision to stop flights in affected regions of West Africa.

" They have taken a decision that only has the country at heart and I salute them, as we all know it will affect them and their operations in a hard way.

Kenya Airways are set to cease flights in Liberia and Sierra Leone starting Tuesday.
