KUALA LUMPUR – Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak has instructed the Health Ministry to be fully prepared for any possibility in efforts to prevent the spread of the Ebola virus disease (Ebola) to this country.
He said for the same purpose, the ministry had intensified Ebola screening at all international entry points in Malaysia.
