Ebola: Kaduna banks screen customers
Barely 24 hours after a suspected case of Ebola Virus Disease was reported at the Ahmadu Bello University, Zaria, commercial banks in Kaduna State have commenced screening of customers before admitting them into the banking hall.
The customers were subjected to hands’ washing before they were allowed into the banks.
However, authorities of the Ahmadu Bello University Teaching Hospital (ABUTH) said they were still awaiting the result of the test carried out on the suspected Ebola victim.
Our Correspondent who monitored the situation said many bank customers were surprised by development, although they described it as a welcome development.
At one of the commercial banks, a security officer refused to speak to the press, but he was heard explaining to customers that the essence of the screening was to prevent Ebola spread.
One of the customers, Malam Abdullahi Baba, told The Nation that the banks’ actions were acceptable.
