How safe is NZ from Ebola?
New Zealand Ebola precautions...
"Border Screening
The risk of a traveller arriving in New Zealand with EVD remains very low. However, travellers arriving in New Zealand who in the last three weeks have visited countries affected by the EVD outbreak will be screened for symptoms of the disease and where necessary receive a health assessment. The changes are in line with similar border controls in Australia. These are an additional precaution as unlike Australia, New Zealand has no direct flights from Africa. All passengers who have recently visited West African countries affected by the Ebola virus disease outbreak will be given advice about the disease and what to do if they become unwell whilst in New Zealand. If a traveller has had contact with EVD infected individuals or worked in health care in countries affected by the EVD outbreak additional monitoring and support may be necessary. "

So in other words, if they don't get you with it at the boarder you can give them a call if you have it. Great plan Mr Key!!!

"Early signs and symptoms include fever, severe headache, joint and muscle aches, chills and weakness. As the disease progresses signs and symptoms become more severe and may include nausea and vomiting, diarrhoea (may be bloody), rash, chest pain and a cough, stomach pain, severe weight loss, liver and/or kidney failure, internal bleeding, bleeding, usually from the eyes, and bruising (people near death may bleed from other orifices, such as ears, nose and rectum)."

No thank you!
