Ebola outbreak: UK border not prepared for virus

General Secretary of the ISU Lucy Moreton says the border is not prepared to deal with the Ebola outbreak with staff unsure what to do if they suspect someone of being sick.
The threat of the Ebola virus to the UK is increasing, according to Keith Vaz MP. The borders to the UK represent the first line of defence against this deadly disease, he added.
Keith Vaz MP, the Chairman of the Home Affairs Select Committee, has today written to the Home Secretary to understand how prepared the UK borders are.
Mr Vaz said: “I am concerned that the officers enforcing our borders suggest they may not be fully prepared to protect the public from the spread of this deadly virus.
“Prevention is not just better than cure, in this case it is essential.
“I have written to the Home Secretary to ensure that we are doing all we can to protect the UK on the frontline.”
