The Myanmar government has taken preventive measures against the spread of Ebola in the country, a health ministry statement said Sunday.


Myanmar has started to screen and monitor people at airports and ports and infection control programmes are being carried out at heathcare facilities with the establishment of isolation wards, Xinhua reported.

According to the statement, the ministry is cooperating with its counterparts of other countries, UN agencies, local, international non-governmental organisations and civil societies to enforce the preventive measures.

"No one is yet detected with Ebola," the statement said.

The statement added that Myanmar is also taking measures to prevent Avian Influenza A (H7N9) and Middle East Respiratory Syndrome Corona (MERS-CoV), which are still prevalant in some countries.

Ebola virus can spread through mucous, other body fluid or secretions such as stool, urine, saliva and semen of infected people.

Four western African countries - Guinea, Liberia, Nigeria and Sierra Leone - have reported 729 deaths from Ebola virus with 1,323 people infected between March and July.
