WHO allays fears about air travel
New York – The United Nations World Health Organisation (WHO) has allayed fears amid reports that airlines are suspending flights over the Ebola outbreak, by sending out social media messages with assurances that “unlike infections like influenza and tuberculosis, Ebola is not airborne”.
The SA Government News Agency is a news service, published by the Government Communication and Information System (GCIS). The people of South Africa have a right to information, irrespective of their class, colour or creed. The Government has a mandate to ensure that its entire people have access to information. In order to make this possible, SAnews.gov.za was established to provide quick and easy access to articles and feature stories aimed at keeping the public informed about the implementation of government's mandate.
An achievement of note for SAnews.gov.za was the clinching of a National Productivity Institute (NPI) Merit Award, in 2000, in recognition of the work it has done in disadvantaged communities.
