Tanzania 'well prepared' to combat Ebola

Tanzania 'well prepared' to combat Ebola

Dodoma, Jun 13 (UNI) Tanzanians "should not worry" about the spread of Ebola, Health Minister Ummy Mwalimu has said reacting to news that the disease had crossed from the Democratic Republic of Congo to Uganda.

Tanzania shares a long border with DR Congo, where an Ebola outbreak has killed nearly 1,400 people.

In a Twitter message, Ms Mwalimu said that Tanzania "is well prepared to combat [the] virus".

On Tuesday, Tanzania, along with Kenya, launched a programme to monitor people as they cross into the country, according to a BBC News report.

The programme will help the authorities quickly share information if Ebola is detected, the health minister said.

In Uganda a five-year-old boy died from Ebola on Wednesday, the first case of the virus reported in the country.

The Ugandan government is now reporting seven other suspected cases of Ebola.
