PARSA: Though delayed, health desks have been established in two of the major border points, Birgunj and Bhairahawa, as an effort to prevent the entry of the deadly Ebola Virus in the country.
The health desk established in front of the Immigration Office near Birgunj Customs Office has started operation from Wednesday.
The desk was established following a meeting of the concerned authorities at the office of Chief District Officer (CDO) Yograj Pandey on Tuesday. District Public Health Office (DPHO) chief Arun Kumar Mahato informed that the desk, operational from 5am to 8pm, will conduct health check-up on the basis of primary symptoms observed in individuals travelling via the border and inform the authorities concerned if found suspicious.
Meanwhile, the DPHO stated that pamphlets will also be distributed to raise awareness about the disease.
Likewise, a similar desk established at Sunauli-Belhiya border point in Rupandehi will become operational from Thursday. DPHO chief Rishi Prasad Lamichhane said two medical teams, changing shifts, will be deployed at the desk and people arriving from four West African nations will be put under special surveillance .
