Kazuri Medical, a company specialising in Aviation and Corporate Health, has confirmed that it has implemented Ebola screenings at Uganda’s Entebbe International Airport following the recent outbreak in the Democratic Republic of Congo.

The screenings have been put in place for all passengers disembarking flights at EBB that originate in the DRC, or Eastern Uganda.

The process involves passengers’ temperatures being taken with an infra-red thermometer, followed by a two-minute physical examination. If a passenger is found to have a fever they will be taken to one side for a further 10-minute examination to establish the cause.

The screenings have not yet caused flight delays and would only significantly delay travel if a passenger was found to be infected.
