The World Health Organisation (WHO) has placed Zambia among countries at risk of an Ebola disease outbreak. 

This is due to Zambia’s porous borders shared with countries such as the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) that has recorded cases of Ebola disease, the Lusaka Times reported.

Nathan Bakyaita, WHO Country Representative, warned that there was a need for the country to be on high alert and explained that was the reason WHO had partnered with Lusaka to guard against any possible outbreak.

Bakyaita made his comments during a visit by Minister of Health Chitalu Chilufya and North Western province minister Naheniel Mubukwanu to a centre where the Ebola rapid response preparedness team is being trained on handling any Ebola-related cases.
