Passenger screening is taking place at Nigerian airports following the recent outbreak of the Ebola virus in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC).

The Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria (FAAN) has sought to reassure travellers and other airport users of the safety of the airports across its network. A statement released by FAAN says surveillance at the airports has not been relaxed since the first recorded case of the virus in Nigeria during the 2014 outbreak.

In the statement, Henrietta Yakubu, gm, corporate affairs at FAAN, confirmed that the equipment used to combat the virus in 2014 was still at the airports. “We have always had thermal scanners in our airports that monitor the temperature of passengers and capture their pictures. We still have hand sanitisers in our rest rooms too. When passengers walk pass the scanners, it registers their temperature. If yours is high, you are pulled aside for observation.”
