The Caribbean Public Health Agency (Carpha) says the risk of the Ebola Virus Disease (EVD) being imported to the Caribbean is low.

Executive director of Carpha, Dr C James Hospedales said, “There have been no confirmed cases of Ebola in the Caribbean, and overall, the risk of becoming infected with the Ebola virus in this region remains low.”

He added that in countries where the virus is present, people who have direct contact with the organs, blood, or other bodily fluids of dead or living infected persons or animals are those at greatest risk.
