Ebola epidemic: Preparations in Malaysia

We do not know the true number of Ebola patients in West Africa. One figure is 12000 with 60 to 70% death rate. The World Health Organization (WHO) must try to confirm the actual number of cases.
     We try to prevent Ebola in Malaysia. The Health Ministry faces complicated problems at entry points such as the Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA).  It  tries to screen arrivals.
     The Government must review the preparations in hospitals such as Sungai Buloh Hospital.  We have no experience in treating Ebola patients.
