Isaac Adewole, minister of health, has directed Nigerian health workers to screen haemorrhagic fever patients for Ebola.

The World Health Organization (WHO) on Sunday confirmed a second case of Ebola in Democratic Republic of Congo after an outbreak this week of 17 other suspected cases.

"The agency has for a while now, been strengthening states capacities to detect, manage and respond to hemorrhagic fevers including Lassa fever and symptoms to look out for include; fever, fatigue, weakness dizziness and muscle aches".

Health officials are attempting to find 125 people who they believe to be connected to the identified cases in the northeastern part of Congo, WHO's Congo spokesman Eugene Kabambi told Reuters.

The Nigeria Center for Disease Control (NCDC) has said, there will be special screening of people travelling into Nigeria from the port as the federal government has already given the directive.

Both Congo and its western neighbor, Republic of Congo, have experienced Ebola outbreaks in the past and global organizations have said they are ready to assist in the event of an epidemic.

The current outbreak comes one year after the end of an Ebola epidemic that killed more than 11,000 people, primarily in Guinea, Sierra Leone and Liberia.

Nigeria experienced the Ebola virus in July, 2014 when a Liberian American, Patrick Sawyer, who had the disease flew from Liberia to the Murtala Muhammed International Airport, Lagos and died five days later.

The minister noted that health care providers and the general public must immediately report any sign of illness to public health officials.
