Preparedness against Ebola threat

Nusrat Gulzar, University of Dhaka

We should be in every way possible alert to Ebola threat and be prepared to prevent it. People should be made aware of the symptoms of Ebola infection so that they can take cautionary steps. The declaration of surveillance is one of the good steps taken by the government to prevent the deadly Ebola virus. Our medical teams will monitor international airports in Dhaka, Chittagong and Sylhet as well as the Chittagong Seaport. Apart from that, mass awareness through campaigns in the media can be effective as well.
