Ebola: FG, NMA Finally Agree on Sept. 22 Resumption Date After Meeting With Reps



Following a meeting with the House of Representatives Committee on Education on Monday, the Federal Government and the Nigerian Medical Association finally agreed on the September 22 resumption of schools nationwide.

The NMA said the September 22 date earlier announced by the federal government for the resumption of schools was acceptable and that schools should resume “in order not to feed into the fear monster in the country," and gave six provisions to be followed to keep the country safe.

Its President, Dr. Kayode Obembe, said the body changed its mind on the condition that the government would, among other conditions, maintain “highest level of vigilance” in the several entry points in the country, resuscitate infectious disease hospital in states and ensure comprehensive screening of travelers, DAILY POST reports.

“All recent travelers to all the provinces of the current endemic countries of the Ebola disease – namely Guinea, Liberia, Sierra Leone, Ivory Coast, Democratic Republic of the Congo, Uganda, Sudan and Gabon-must be carefully scrutinized for the presence of the virus and epidemiologically treated accordingly," he added.
