8. What is being done to prevent ill passengers in West Africa from getting on a plane?

All passengers from West Africa (airports in Liberia, Sierra Leone and Guinea) are being screened (looking for those who may be having signs and symptoms of ebola virus disease), health education about Ebola virus disease is offered in aeroplanes and again our ministry (MOH) have sent experts to major airports in West Africa to monitor the way screening process is been conducted. This way, those who are sick are prevented from travelling to Kenya. In addition, when these passengers arrive in our airports (such as JKIA, Moi, Eldoret etc) they are further screened by trained health personnel who have been deployed at our airports to look for possible Ebola patients who may be entering the country. Further, screening is being carried out at all border points.
