Nigeria was recently declared free of Ebola by the World Health Organization, and other nations have been asked to emulate the measures we put in place to combat the virus.
For fear of contacting the deadly Ebola virus, Nigerian travelers have been forced to cancel their flights to the United States and some European countries, Punch reports.
Also, health and immigration officials at the Murtala Mohammed International Airport, Lagos have been ordered to properly screen passengers coming into the country from the affected countries.
An official of Delta Airlines, who gave her name as Marylyn Thomas, told the newspaper, that since Ebola hit the US, some passengers had rescheduled or cancelled their flights.
“It is becoming a serious issue and I think everyone is trying to be careful since the news broke out. Already, some passengers are showing serious concerns and some have gone as far as cancelling or rescheduling their flights,” Thomas said.
