Secretary for Health Chris Kang’ombe said Friday in the capital Lilongwe that the money would be used, among others, to buy protective clothing for health workers and setting up holding clinics at the country’s entry points.

“Although the country has not yet received any case, there is need to protect ourselves from acquiring the virus. It is good to put in place preventative measures across the country,” he said.

He urged Malawians to be alert although World Health Organization declared southern Africa Ebola-free.

The official said the Malawian government was still putting measures to ensure that its citizens are protected such as the deployment of experts at all airports and other entry points to screen immigrants entering the country.
