Kenya retains Ebola ban: Government

16 September 2014, 19:01 Victor Tinto

Nairobi - The Kenyan government will not lift a travel ban to West African countries affected by an outbreak of Ebola virus until the risk reduce to a manageable level, government officials said.

Director of Medical Services, Nicholas Muraguri, said that Kenya remains vulnerable to Ebola transmission, and hence needs to intensify surveillance at ports of entry.

"The travel ban to Ebola-hit countries is temporary and since we are not yet convinced the risk levels are low, the ban will stay, " Muraguri said in Nairobi.

Kenya imposed a travel ban to Liberia, Guinea and Sierra Leone in August due to severity of Ebola pandemic. Government officials clarified that the travel ban was subject to review.

Muraguri said state organs have carried out regular assessment of the Ebola pandemic to help inform lifting of the ban.

"We review the travel ban weekly, and so far there is no scientific evidence to demonstrate Ebola threat has subsided," said Muraguri.

Kenya has currently enlisted in regional and continental efforts to combat Ebola.

Over 2,500 people have died from the outbreak with over double that number have been infected with the virus.
