Risk of Ebola virus outbreak in Algeria, low, says Health ministry

ALGIERS- The risk of Ebola virus outbreak in Algeria is "low," said Thursday the Ministry of Health, Population and Hospital Reform in a statement.

"After analysing the situation, the special committee of experts in different areas, said that there is a low risk of Ebola outbreak in Algeria," said the Health ministry, which has however taken many preventive measures.

"The environmental and climatic conditions in different regions of Algeria, particularly in the South are not favourable to the survival of Ebola virus," said the ministry.

In this regard, the ministry also cited "the mode of transmission of the disease, which requires close and direct contact with body fluids of infected people, the virus outbreak is still in limited geographic area, and the absence of direct air links between Algeria and Guinea," the country where Ebola virus has been reported by the World Health Organization.
