The Czech authorities are boosting their surveillance and control measures in connection with the Ebola outbreak in West Africa. Airport terminals are prepared to deal with such emergencies and Prague’s Bulovka hospital has a team of epidemiological experts on stand-by. There will moreover be information leaflets at airports and railway terminals describing the main symptoms of the disease and information help lines for the public. Health Minister Svatopluk Nemecek is to inform the cabinet in detail on Tuesday of the potential risks for the Czech Republic and the preventative measures being taken. The highly contagious disease has killed more than 700 people in West Africa since February.
