I don't want to sound alarmist. But I came across a CNN report suggesting that the spread of Ebola to Uganda is imminent. Some Ebola deaths have been reported at the border between DRC and Uganda.

Its called a perfect storm because it is being spread by soldiers of different warring factions which makes it difficult to stop because war zones and no go zones for health workers.

The report also suggests that it may spread to South Sudan and Rwanda.

Thousands of Kenyans are traveling to Uganda, Rwanda and Sudan. And many of those rebels who are currently fighting in Kivu often end up in Nairobi Eastlands. Therefore there is a distinct chance that a Kenyan(s) could be infected this time.

Is Kenya prepared?

Ebola is also spread through non human primates like Harambe's relatives and Zokwes

hehehe. I see You've got jokes.
Let me tell you men. If there is an Ebola panic in a city of 5 million people, Kenyans will immediately forget all the problems they have. Of all the problems Kenyans have now, none is worse than an Ebola outbreak.

I wonder if kina Essyk bado wako na mzaha

You know the Ebola outbreak in Liberia found its way to Texas USA before it spread to some countries neighbouring Liberia. A nurse treating an Ebola patient in Texas contracted the disease herself.

I dont think Kenyan hospitals have the wherewithal to treat patients. And its unlikely that they have rehearsed any potential scenario whereby a patient arrives with Ebola. And given the poor pay, none of the staff is motivated.

So I hope to God that arrivals at JKIA from Kampala are also being screened as is happening pale Busia. And I hope the screening is effective. Dis thing no be joke.

The typical Mwafrika mentality. Instead of taking fire-safety precautions we wait until the building is on fire. And this is why pandemics are common in Africa and rare in the west. Sisi kama Waafrigha, forward planning is completely alien to most of us. We live for this moment only.

So far 3 have died so far. Uganda was warned in September of last year. Looks like they did nothing until the 1st case was reported. Masukuma can laugh it off. But I bet the families of those infected are cursing Uganda's ministry of health for doing nothing.

You are so wrong. Uganda has a very strong ebola surveillance system. Vaccines are even available in the risky areas. No Ugandan has died of ebola. The two boys were congolese refugees and the cases were detected very fast.

Not good for tourism. Expect travel advisories and visa denials.

Your concerns should be about the wananchi in the affected areas and not some mzungus thousands of miles away.

Mwananinchi will be losing revenue. Those advisories dont hurt their industries but yours

There's something very wrong from this kind of thinking, focus one thing because the other is also happening .... probably caused by scarcity of resources...I don't know. But if deaths can be stopped they should anyhow... Every ministry has an allocation kila mtu afanye kazi yake

I don't understand this mentality. Do we lack the ability to make roads safer and also prevent pandemics. You mean to tell me we can't do both?

History being the key operative word there. I suppose you are probably referring to the great plague which happened centuries ago.

There is that but that's rather far back. Spanish flu, Boivine Flu, SARS etc. just google plagues and see how many of them were in Africa.
