Barbados monitoring two from Ebola-affected states

(Barbados Nation) Two individuals who recently entered the island from Ebola-affected countries are being monitored by the Ministry of Health.

Chief Medical Officer Dr Joy St John said both individuals were low risk, which means they had no contact with the disease.

They were being monitored because of the country they came from. Dr St John did not disclose the name of the country.

The temperature of the two individuals will be monitored twice a day for the period of time they are on the island.

St John spoke to THE NATION on the sidelines of an Ebola Virus Disease Sensitisation Seminar held at the Lloyd Erskine Sandiford Centre for stakeholders in the Ministry Of Tourism and International Transport.
