The Republic of Rwanda has turned the heat on ‘white boys’. This, really, has more to do with a clash of civilizations than the health of nations.
In a Health Ministry memo which has rattled the western world with their piousness and self-righteousness that’s but crude racism, Rwanda requires everyone from the United States and Spain to undergo Ebola screening in the country just like African brothers from Sierra Leone, Liberia and the Republic of Guinea Conakry. And that’s for the next 21 days, each day!
The Rwanda ministry of Health has issued health safety guidelines to incoming passengers from Guinea, Liberia, Sierra Leone, USA and Spain or traveled to those countries in the last 22 days.
The passengers are to call a toll free line (114) on a daily basis to report about their health status for the duration of their stay in the country or for 21 days if they are to stay longer.
Spain recorded deaths of two missionary priests who separately contracted Ebola in Sierra Leone and Liberia. However the Spanish nursing assistant who worked on them successfully recovered from the virus.
USA has recorded one death, two confirmed infections of two nurses while more than 100 are being tracked.
More than 4, 500 have died of Ebola in Guinea, Liberia, Sierra Leone and Nigeria (yesterday declared Ebola-free).
