No EVD cases have been recorded in Libya, NCDC says
The Director of the National Center for Disease Control (NCDC), Haider Al-Sayeh, has confirmed that there is no evidence about the presence of Ebola virus disease (EVD), formerly known as Ebola haemorrhagic fever in Libya, stressing that the center did not record any cases.
The NCDC publication of the information card about Ebola, after the outbreak of the disease in Uganda, comes within the framework of raising awareness among citizens and protecting the country's national health security, Al-Sayeh said in a visual statement posted by the Ministry of Health on its Facebook page.
The NCDC recalled on its monitoring and response teams to take preventive measures to prevent the spread of the virus by training medical personnel to deal with any infection with this disease.
