The Acting Commissioner of Police, Nafo’itoa Tala’imanu Keti, yesterday dispelled fears about the possibility of ebola entering the country through returning Police officers who have been on peacekeeping mission.
The Commissioner was contacted for a comment after an official raised concerns about police peacekeepers from Samoa who have been working in Northern Africa, namely Sudan.
“Africa is a big place and the officers are on the other side,” said Nafo’itoa. “So far there is no ebola in Sudan. If there was any ebola in the area (Sudan) we would’ve withdrawn them.”
