Official rules out entry of any Ebola case into UAE but says country is prepared to deal with cases from abroad

The UAE is free from the Ebola virus and the Ministry of Health (MOH) is taking preventive and precautionary measures in line with the World Health Organisation's (WHO) regulations to keep the disease at bay, according to a WAM report.

Dr. Amin Al Amiri, Assistant Undersecretary of the Ministry for the Public Health Policies and Licensing and Ministry spokesman, said  the Ministry is in contact with WHO and other authorities on preventive measures.

Al Amiri reiterated that the procedures taken so far are sufficient to protect the country from the deadly virus. He ruled out the entry of any Ebola case into the country but said the UAE is prepared to deal with any case from abroad.

He added that the Ministry, in coordination with the competent authorities, is implementing all the resolutions of the last WHO meeting with the countries where Ebola has been detected, to prevent the entry of the disease into the country.
