According to Yen.com.gh, the South Sudanese medical staff deployed at Juba International Airport to screen arrivers for deadly Coronavirus have reportedly fled the airport after a plane carrying Chinese diplomats landed.

The country this week begun screening all travelers at airports to help avert the spread of the coronavirus in the country.

As part of response intervention, South Sudan launched a detective machine that will help to sense the virus in the human body.

The Minister of Health says the launch is a preparedness measure to protect South Sudanese.

Dr. Riak Gai Kok said South Sudan and China will not suspend travels between the two countries.

“We will not suspend travels between China and South Sudan but we are appealing to people that you consider the fragility of our health system and the vulnerability of our people,” said the minister of health.

He advised travelers to follow the regulations at airports knowing that South Sudan is vulnerable in handling any outbreak.

“If one case is imported to South Sudan, it will be a disaster and we have abundance and surplus of problems.”

“The WHO headquarters in Geneva has declared Coronavirus as a public health emergency of international concern that’s why also we have to be aware here in South Sudan and to be prepared. It’s not only confined to China,” said Dr. Riak Gai.

“It has spread to so many countries and as you know there is heavy traffic between South Sudan and China.”

The minister of health was speaking during the launch of the specialised equipment at Juba International Airport on Friday.

The specialized equipment for detecting any infectious disease was donated by the government of Japan.
