Effects of Ebola on Medical Tourism

Ebola is a rare but deadly virus that causes bleeding inside and outside the body. As the virus spreads through the body, it damages the immune system and organs. It causes levels of blood-clotting cells to drop. This indicates to severe, uncontrollable bleeding.

When Ebola was just a disease that affected Africa, the Western world took little notification. It was one of many global issues, outshined in the Western media by struggle in the Middle East and fears of the spread of terrorism.

When Ebola reached Europe and the USA, it began to dominate the media. Media stories on Ebola, some well researched and written, but others with dangerously misleading information populated the front pages.

Western politicians and medical professionals were initially confident that they could deal with the disease, until patients travelling to the USA and Europe started failing, and the disease spread to health professionals treating them.

Effects of Ebola on Medical Tourism:

• Ebola threat to the medical tourism sector. A business dependent on sending sick people from one country or continent to another should be concerned about a disease that could have serious consequences for parts of the industry.

• In medical tourism, businesses should have ruin plans to manage with getting patients out of a country that suffers a sudden political or weather disaster.

• There is the weak possibility that there might be a global ban on all medical travel. Much more likely is that there will be local bans, and warnings not to travel to or from listed countries.

• The 2016 Africa Cup of Nations should be postponed because of the epidemic. Tourism companies in East and South Africa are reporting severe falls in bookings.

Medical Screening for Ebola:

There are 2 scenarios of medical screening for Ebola are as follows:

• One is that it will be extended for outbound flights from a few African countries, to all African countries.

• Second is that the US and Europe will extend medical screening of inbound passengers firstly to all African countries, and then perhaps to all countries.

Effects of Medical Screening:

• Increases in medical screening could execute major delays on travel and airport time.

Ebola is a rare but deadly virus that causes bleeding inside and outside the body. As the virus spreads through the body, it damages the immune system and organs. It causes levels of blood-clotting cells to drop. This indicates to severe, uncontrollable bleeding.

• Increases in medical screening could execute major delays on travel and airport time. For healthy passengers, this is a problem and may at least for a few months, discourage people from travelling.

• Medical tourists being stopped and some turned back could have a major effect on the future of medical tourism.

• The main African countries where Ebola is now a serious problem are Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone.

• The US Department of State has warned against all travel to these three countries, and added a travel warning for Nigeria. Countries most at risk of spread are their neighbors Senegal, Ivory Coast and Ghana.

• Nigeria is a major exporter of medical tourists. Most go to India, some to South Africa and the UK. A few people go from Ghana to Nigeria.

• Nigeria’s control of Ebola is awaiting World Health Organization certification as an Ebola-free nation, led to the USA and Canada dropping Nigeria from countries whose nationals will be carefully screened at their major airports while entering the country.

Conclusion:

A study by the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention expects there could be up to 1.4 million cases of Ebola in West Africa by the middle of January. The World Bank has informed of disastrous significances on the economy across the African continent estimated at £20.3bn by the end of 2016, because of the failure to effectively and directly contain the virus.
