“The witch doctors, traditional healers and herbalists should not accept sick people in their shrines or places of treatment. Advise them to call health workers for safe transfer to hospitals,” he directed.
Museveni also directed religious leaders not to accept sick people with symptoms of Ebola who come seeking healing prayers because when they touch them, they will contract Ebola.
“Advise them to call health workers for safe transfer to hospital. Boda boda riders should be vigilant and not carry sick people with signs and symptoms of Ebola. Advise them to call for an ambulance,” he advised.
