Mauritius Ebola Fever: The authorities prohibit the import of fruit from West Africa

While the World Health Organisation (WHO) had declared last week that the measures taken by the Mauritian authorities were satisfactory against the possibility of a spread of the Ebola hemorrhagic fever on the island, the Ministry of agro-industry has recently banned any import of plants, fruits, meat and other pets from countries of West Africa.
For importers of fruit, this ban should not unduly affect the supply of fruits of the Mauritian stalls, since the bulk of imports arrive from South Africa, Egypt, Pakistan and Italy, as reported by the Le Matinal newspaper.
As a reminder, national prevention plan that strengthens the health monitoring of entries at the airport as well as within the port and put infrastructure in place under the authority of the Prime Minister's office has recently been validated by WHO.
Mauritius has already received 4,000 protective equipment body for hospital staff who would be in charge of possible suspects.
Two rooms of insulation at Souillac Hospital have already also constructed to accommodate infected patients and who would be placed under quarantine.
