Ebola is one of those deadly viral – disease that can hastily bring person’s life to an end. Considering its effects in West Africa where it has taken root, the threat is already being felt in the East of African countries as some travelers including those who were planning safaris to Rwanda have started to cancel their trips due to Ebola scourge thinking that its all over Africa.
Though this is a wrong perception as no cases of Ebola has been reported in the East of Africa and taking into account the distance in between these two reins, Rwanda has beefed up the efforts to prevent the spread of this deadly virus to her country. In this effort, all travelers including Rwanda safari undertakers traveling from Republic of Guinea Conakry, Sierra Leone, Liberia, USA and Spain or who have traveled through those countries within the past 22 days are required to give an update of their health status on daily basis by calling toll free 144 and for a minimum of 21 days for long stay visitors. The signs feature fever, Headache, Joint and sore throat.
This strategy is seen as a perfect move to ensure Ebola free Rwanda and better lives for Rwandese and for those on safari in Rwanda. The listed countries have already confirmed cases of Ebola with Spain losing two missionary priests that contacted it separately from sierra Leone and Liberia, USA has recorded one death and two confirmed nurses with more 100 being tracked. In Guinea the number is up to 45,000.
The initiative will help the travelers in Rwanda to enjoy their safari encounters including Gorilla safaris, Chimpanzee trekking safaris, cultural tours and wildlife safaris.
