The WHO recommends that all travel agencies and airlines selling seats or tickets for travel must take on the responsibility of sensitizing their clients on the risk of Ebola.
Signs are to be posted at the airports and a special facility will be established for suspected cases.
Additionally, there will be the distribution of protective gear for persons who work at the ports of entry and there will be additional screening.
The Public Health Ministry has also announced that the travel history of passengers will be examined closely.
