Fully prepared for Ebola, says Health Minister C. Vijayabaskar

Health Minister C. Vijayabaskar on Monday said in the Assembly that the government had created awareness on dealing with Ebola in hospitals across the State as early as April.

During the debate on the demand for grants for his department, he said it was because of the stringent monitoring measures put in by the government, a person returning to Chennai from Africa on Saturday was properly screened for the viral infection.

That person did not show any symptoms of Ebola and was later discharged.

Reiterating that there was no need for panic, he said awareness about Ebola among medical professionals in government hospitals was created.
