The Japanese government has presented
various medical equipment to the Ghana
Health Service to help prevent the Ebola Virus
from entering the country. The items were presented at the opening
ceremony of a training of trainers workshop
for border personnel at Koforidua, sponsored
by the Japanese Government. The Kotoka International Airport and the Tema
Harbour would receive the items, which include
disposable gloves, aprons, face masks, infra-
red thermometers, hygiene kits and buckets. Presenting the items, the Japanese
Ambassador to Ghana, Mr Kaoru Yoshimura
said the presentation forms part of the
continuous support of Japan towards the
Ebola preparedness of the country. He said Japan had already presented non-
