The risk of coming into contact with the Ebola virus in Luxembourg is minimal.
The possibility that an imported case, namely someone contaminated in a West African country where the virus is more spread , could transmit the virus to the population, is also low, given
- the small number of people passing through or returning from these countries;
- the information and care given to travellers coming from these countries;
- the procedures put in place to detect such cases and to apply the necessary measures to care for, diagnose and isolate patients.
Care establishments and healthcare professionals
The Ministry of Health has drawn up guidelines for hospitals, doctor's offices and medical centres which contain precise instructions for the early detection of Ebola cases and the necessary reactions when presented with a suspected, probable or confirmed case of the disease. This information has also been sent to pharmacies.
