As part of Rwanda’s measures to prevent the Ebola virus from entering the country, the government has announced that all visitors from the United States and Spain must undergo Ebola screening.

Visitors from the aforementioned countries will be required to “self-monitor, fill out an extensive questionnaire and report their medical condition for the first 21 days of their visits because of the Ebola cases that have surfaced in the two Western countries,” ThisDay reports.

The Rwandan government released the following statement on the issue:

“On October 19, the Rwandan Ministry of Health introduced new Ebola Virus Disease screening requirements. Visitors who have been in the United States or Spain during the last 22 days are now required to report their medical condition—regardless of whether they are experiencing symptoms of Ebola—by telephone by dialing 114 between 7:00 a.m. and 8:00 p.m. for the duration of their visit to Rwanda (if less than 21 days), or for the first 21 days of their visit to Rwanda. Rwandan authorities continue to deny entry to visitors who traveled to Guinea, Liberia, Senegal, or Sierra Leone within the past 22 days.”

Rwanda is located in East Africa, which is approximately 2,600 miles East of Liberia. The country has been unaffected by the Ebola outbreak.

    You will see how quick the ebola conspiracy will be cleared up in the States when they see and hear that African countries want to give them the treatment.

      What has Nigeria done again? Jeeeeeeeeeez u ppl sha! Everything is an excuse to tear ur country down. U ppl have been following too many depressing cashtivists; a pity. Even america and what they are presently dealing with haven’t blocked borders. They only restricted entry to certain airports. What is it with you ppl abeg?
