Ebola not a threat to Thailand

- +

There is very little chance the Ebola virus will spread from west Africa to Thailand, permanent health secretary Narong Sahamethapat insisted on Thursday. 

Dr Narong  said no Ebola infections had been found in Thailand, and there was a very low opportunity for the disease to reach here.

Even so, health officials nationwide have been told to watch out for anyone showing possible  symptoms -- a high temperature, muscle pain, headache, vomiting and a rash. Laboratory staff were on standby to make  any necessary tests.
