The Principal Medical Officer at the Ministry Of Health Dr. James Sekajugo notes that most passengers fill the forms from the airport and are not told beforehand of the screening procedures.

Sekajugo says there should be cooperation with the airline companies to ensure that any suspected case of Ebola is dealt with immediately.
