Ghana government lifts Ebola conference ban

EbolaThe government of Ghana has lifted the ban it placed on international conferences in Ghana following the outbreak of Ebola in some countries in West Africa.

In a statement signed by Communication Minister, Dr. Edward Omane Boamah and issued in Accra Thursday February 19, 2015, it says “The moratorium placed on the holding of international conferences and fora in Ghana on account of the recent Ebola outbreak in the sub-region, has been lifted forthwith until otherwise directed.”

The statement noted that in August 2014, the government reviewed and evaluated the interventions instituted to prevent the deadly Ebola Viral Disease in Ghana.

The decision to ban meetings the statement said, was consistent with the firm decision of the ECOWAS Commission that all meetings and missions be suspended unless absolutely essential and well-guided.
