Only two cases of the virus have been confirmed by lab tests.

Meanwhile, WHO has been given the go-ahead by officials in the DRC to import and use an experimental Ebola vaccine in the country, Director-General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus said.

"The Senate is disturbed that recent reports by media outlets and the World Health Organisation show that the disease is back in the neighbouring Democratic Republic of Congo with 19 dead and 39 infected recorded so far". In the meantime, Pinnick has reassured there will be no health risks on the arrival of DRC following the outbreak of the dreaded Ebola disease in that country.

The Chief Whip, Senator Sola Adeyeye, however, pointed out that the disease, if spread to Nigeria, might have a devastating effect as workers in the country's public health institutions were on strike.

"The Senate also notes the report of World Health Organization stating that Nigeria and other African countries are at modest risk of spread". Congo's government authorized the use of the vaccine last week. A new experimental vaccine has been shown to be highly effective, though quantities are now limited.

"This time, they've wasted no time", she said. In his contribution, Victor Umeh (APGA, Anambra Central), said alarm raised by Tinubu on Ebola via the motion was timely "because prevention is better than cure as Ebola dealt a bad blow on the country in recent past, with the loss of medical personnel and some other people".

"It is important that Nigeria is proactive on measures to be taken so as not to be caught unaware about the possible outbreak of the endemic Ebola virus", he said.

The outbreak is centered around the remote town of Bikoro in the province of Equateur, while samples have been taken from two suspected cases in Mbandaka, the provincial capital that's home to about 1 million residents. There have also been eight cases and 115 contacts in Iboko health zone.
