Malawi is safe from the deadly disease, Ebola, a senior government official has said.

Mwansambo: Malawi is safe but alert

The chief director in the ministry of Health Charles Mwansambo has said the country's border posts have not detected the disease which has killed 1000 people in the Democratic Republic of Congo so far.

"The country is very safe from the disease. The electronic and response detection is working very well," said Mwansambo.

Mwansambo said this in Lilongwe on Tuesday when Boabab showcased how 59 facilities are working in the country's border districts to detect the disease.

Boabab Health spokesperson Mathews Malata said his organization was happy that it has finally installed the facility at Kamuzu International Airport terminal.

"We are alert at all times," said Malata.

DRC, where Malawi Defence Force soldiers serve as peace keepers, remains the ebola epicenter in the world.
