CORONAVIRUS: FAAN Releases Travel Advisory

CORONAVIRUS: FAAN Releases Travel Advisory

 

 

The Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria (FAAN) has advised passengers and other airport users to comply with all quarantine procedures at the nation's airports.

 

FAAN said the advice is in an effort to protect passengers from the epidemic ravaging some countries and to prevent the spread of such communicable diseases into Nigeria,

 

FAAN said that all the equipment and personnel used in combating the deadly Ebola virus in 2014 are still very much in place at the airports.

 

“FAAN has always had thermal scanners in her airports that monitor temperature of passengers and capture their pictures. When passengers walk pass the scanner, it registers their temperature and if too high, they are pulled aside for observation,” FAAN said in a statement obtained by digitaltimesng.com.

 

Recall that recently, a deadly virus known as CORONAVIRUS broke out in China and has since killed six people, with over 300 also reported to have been infected. The virus is highly communicable and has already spread to boarder countries like Japan, Thailand and South Korea.

 

FAAN, in collaboration with the Federal Ministry of Health, have confirmed the adequacy of the facilities at the nation's airports to prevent the importation of the virus through the airports.

 

Passengers are therefore, advised to submit themselves for routine quarantine checks whenever they are asked to.

    We have the likes of nkiru onyejeocha who kept enjoying our democracy dividends, and using our money to buy praises to her name in the line buying wrapper and rice for her party faithfuls, I thought she boast of attracting federal government attention to her people or is that one part of her political propaganda. Let her come ooo its time to give back to her people.
