CAIRO: Minister of Health Adel Adawy and Minister of Civil Aviation Hossam Kamal met Monday to coordinate efforts to prevent the entrance of the Ebola virus to Egypt through West African travelers, reported Youm7.

The World Health Organization (WHO) recently announced an international health emergency over the outbreak of Ebola, adding that the death toll of the virus nears 1,000.

Adawy stated Monday that medical teams at airports will be informed of the scheduled flights coming from West African states in which Ebola is widespread, and will funnel all passengers from said states into a separate arrival hall.

The health ministry has previously announced that the Abbasiya Fever hospital would be the institution to receive any possible Ebola cases.
