Ceiba Intercontinental Airlines resumes flights to its neighboring countries after taking Ebola virus precautions
Ceiba Intercontinental Airlines (Malabo, Equatorial Guinea) despite concerns about the spreading Ebola virus, has resumed regional flights to Abidjan, Accra, Cotonou, Dakar and Lomé. The flights were suspended in August due to fears the virus would spread further. A press release was issued by the government:
Equatorial Guinea has resumed regional flights to neighboring African countries by its national air carrier, Ceiba Intercontinental, after taking control measures to safeguard public health.
The temporary suspension of the Ceiba Intercontinental flights was a precautionary measure adopted by the government, but it resumed the flights after it obtained equipment to detect and confront a possible Ebola outbreak. The flights were resumed in order to break the isolation of the affected neighboring countries, which need commercial air service in order to receive supplies and maintain commercial ties with the rest of the continent.
The Government of the Republic of Equatorial Guinea has invested more than 1 million Euros in the acquisition of healthcare materials, including ambulatory hospitals, ambulances, thermographic cameras for the airports of Malabo and Bata, protection suits, disinfection material, waterproof boots, protection glasses and laser thermometers, among other articles, aimed at confronting a possible Ebola outbreak in the country. Two quarantine areas and specially equipped isolation chambers have also been prepared in the cities of Malabo and Bata.
After verifying the size of the current Ebola outbreak, which has already caused the deaths of some 2,400 persons, the Government of Equatorial Guinea created a special committee for the control and prevention of this disease, and has organized awareness tours on Ebola throughout the entire national territory.
Equatorial Guinea also made a gesture of solidarity to its neighbors earlier this month, when President Obiang announced the donation of 2 million U.S. dollars to the WHO as a grant for the programs to combat Ebola. He made the announcement during the ceremony to present the UNESCO-Equatorial Guinean Prize for Research in Life Sciences.
