Ebrima Koroma, a health practitioner at Giboro situated near the Senegalese province of Casamance, Wednesday 12th November, 2014, informed Foroyaa that Gambia has lifted the restriction on entry into the country of Guineans, Sierra Leoneans, Nigerians and Liberians. Mr. Koroma said, “We were told by the Gambian authorities that we can open the border to allow people to pass including those from countries affected by Ebola without restriction but with conditions.” According to him, the World Health Organization is not recommending the closure of borders as part of efforts to control the spread of Ebola. He added, “Whoever comes from any Ebola affected country such as Guinea, Sierra Leone and Liberia undergoes screening, but for such people, we visit the places they live on a weekly basis to ensure the Gambia is safe from the Ebola virus. We are at the border both day and night because we haven’t received any directive to leave the border yet.” Gambian health authorities, he noted, asked them to be vigilant and screen any incoming person (visitor) as well as taking their full contacts, including their personal lines and that of the person they will be staying with in case of any suspected case.]]>
