The risk of Barbados becoming affected by the dreaded Ebola virus disease is very low.

That assurance yesterday from Acting Chief Medical Officer Dr Kenneth George who expressed confidence in the public health systems on the island.

“They [health systems] tend to work and that’s the reason why the risk is so low,” George told a media managers’ briefing, hosted by Minister of Health John Boyce and including senior health officials, at his Culloden Road, St Michael offices at the National Insurance building.

Boyce also disclosed the setting up of a four-bed isolation unit at the Enmore Centre of the Queen Elizabeth Hospital (QEH) which would be specially equipped to handle chronic infectious diseases. (TS)
