According to Natural News, the government of the African nation of Rwanda, in the eastern part of the continent, is now mandating that all visitors from the United States and Spain self-monitor for signs of Ebola, as well as complete an extensive questionnaire and report their medical condition to authorities for the first 21 days of their visits, because the virus has now appeared in both countries.
The Rwandan government order was posted in recent days on the website of the U.S. Embassy in that country:
On October 19, the Rwandan Ministry of Health introduced new Ebola Virus Disease screening requirements. Visitors who have been in the United States or Spain during the last 22 days are now required to report their medical condition--regardless of whether they are experiencing symptoms of Ebola--by telephone by dialing 114 between 7:00 a.m. and 8:00 p.m. for the duration of their visit to Rwanda (if less than 21 days), or for the first 21 days of their visit to Rwanda. Rwandan authorities continue to deny entry to visitors who traveled to Guinea, Liberia, Senegal, or Sierra Leone within the past 22 days.

Since the Ebola virus broke out in West Africa earlier this year, there have been deaths from the disease in both Spain and the U.S. A Liberian national, Thomas Eric Duncan, brought the disease with him to Dallas, and two nurses who treated him at the Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital there have since tested positive for the virus. In Spain, at least two missionaries have died after contracting the virus while working with Ebola patients in West Africa. In addition, a Spanish nurse has also tested positive for Ebola, USA Today reports.An uproar at a New Jersey school "started after a school nurse sent a note to staff members saying that the school intended to take the temperature of... two students,” from Rwanda, “three times a day for the next 3 weeks, the normal incubation period for Ebola," the paper reported.
The school's superintendent has since apologized for the incident.
Dr. Thomas Frieden said the program would begin in six states immediately and gradually be expanded nationwide. The Associated Press (AP) reported that those states were New York, Pennsylvania, Maryland, Virginia and Georgia. Airports in those states are major international hubs, officials have said.
"The bottom line is that we have to keep our guard against Ebola," Frieden said while discussing the program with reporters.
