The Czech Republic will not introduce mandatory checks of passengers at its airports over Ebola, the country’s chief hygiene officer, Vladimír Valenta, said on Friday. The World Health Organization (WHO) has declared the spread of Ebola in West Africa an international health emergency, requiring a coordinated international response. The chief hygiene officer referred to the European commissioner for health who has described the danger of the spread of the disease to EU countries as “extremely low”. The Czech Republic will focus on providing information for the time being. Hygiene officer Valenta made clear it was not recommended to travel to countries hit by the Ebola outbreak if at all possible.
