Health ministry isolates man who visited West Africa to monitor him for signs of Ebola

“Prevention is better than cure” and Jamaica’s Health Ministry appears to be taking necessary steps to prevent an Ebola outbreak on the island.

According to a report by ZIPFM, the Ministry of Health has moved to isolate a Doctor who recently visited West Africa, part of which is facing mounting deaths from Ebola.

It’s understood that the Doctor who works at a government health facility in Kingston was told to go home and stay home for 21 days, as he is observed for any signs of Ebola.

The Doctor went to Nigeria for a family matter, and when he returned to his job in Kingston, he was told to go home and stay away from work.


Colleagues of the Doctor say it appears an extra precaution is being taken as it was unlikely the Doctor came in contact with any Ebola patient.
