is that if the person dies of Ebola the body is disposed of with immediate effect and it will be ensured that nobody comes into contact with the corpse contrary to customary practices,” she said. Nkwe said in the event that any patient is admitted to the Industrial Clinic suspected of Ebola, other patients would use alternative health facilities around town. She added that they had also sensitised the aviation staff at the Selebi-Phikwe airport on Ebola symptoms, so that they can detect them from new arrivals.

The district DHMT has identified Khurumela Clinic and Martins Drift border post as Ebola isolation centres in Palapye.
