IGP Ochola issues  Ebola dos and don’ts  to police commanders.

The Inspector General of Police, John Martins Okoth Ochola has issued guidelines to be followed by police commanders in ensuring they control the spread of Ebola.

The Ministry of Health earlier this week announced the outbreak of Ebola in Mubende district where two people have died of the disease.

On Friday, the Police Director for Public Services, AIGP Dr.Moses Byaruhanga, the Director of Health Services presented measures and Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs) to be followed by commanders but also communicated to their subordinates in a bid to help contain the spread of Ebola.

“Ebola is spread mainly by hands that pick it and spread it to the mouth and nose. If you touch body fluids from an infected person including saliva, urine, blood and feaces and you touch your face, the virus will go into your body and cause a lot of problems.

The most important thing is that we must manage our hands the way we did during Covid.
