Dear Swiss citizens in Ghana and in Togo

As you can perceive from the media, the Ebola virus has been spreading since July 2014 in the West African Sub-region. Currently Guinea, Liberia, Nigeria and Sierra Leone and maybe Benin (not confirmed yet) are affected. The World Health Organization WHO is coordinating efforts to fight the disease and its spread. The subsequent development of this Ebola outbreak is uncertain.

The Swiss Embassy in Accra, Ghana appeals to all Swiss in Ghana and Togo to be cautious and urges complying with the recommendations of the WHO, as well as following the directives of local authorities. Find out information about the disease, symptoms, transmission, protective measures and the subsequent development of the Ebola outbreak in West Africa. On the WHO website you can find all the information you need to know about the disease. Please also note the information and recommendations of the Federal Office of Public Health BAG (information only in German or in French)
