Six Indians from Liberia to be tested for Ebola

New Delhi: Six Indian nationals who arrived here from Ebola-hit Liberia Tuesday morning have been sent to the Ram Manohar Lohia Hospital for screening and further tests, said an official.

“Some cases of passengers with possible symptoms of Ebola have been reported and sent for further medical screening in the Ram Manohar Lohia Hospital which is capable of handling the contagious disease,” an official posted at the Terminal-3 (T3) of the Indira Gandhi International Airport (IGIA) told IANS.

He said that no Indian carrier has reported any passenger with suspected EVD symptoms landing at the IGI.

“These passengers are mostly travelling on international carriers from West Africa and interchanging at global hubs in Europe or Middle East before heading back to India,” said the official.
