The Ministry of Health has deployed inspectors and thermal scanners at the Simon Mwansa Kapwepwe International Airport in Ndola and at the Mokambo and Kasumbalesa border posts.
This has been done to prevent an outbreak of Ebola, which has so far claimed eighteen lives in neighbouring Democratic Republic of Congo -DRC.
A check by ZNBC News at the Kasumbalesa border post found health personnel screening everyone entering the country from the DRC.
Chililabombwe Senior Environmental Health Officer Mutumwenu Kalaluka has told ZNBC News that on average, 5-hundred visitors from the DRC are screened daily at Kasumbalesa.
Mr. Kalaluka says so far, no one entering the country has been found with signs of the Ebola virus.
And Copperbelt Province Public Health Specialist Charles Sakulanda says health personnel on the Copperbelt are on high alert against Ebola.
