KINDIA, GUINEA — Guinean security forces are intensifying their Ebola screening efforts at the border with Sierra Leone.
At the Madina Oula town crossing, people are subjected to rigorous health checks. Guinean security forces check for fever and instruct all travelers to wash their hands with soap before entering Guinea.
Kindia, the district capital, is a short distance away - just 150 kilometers from the Guinean capital of Conakry.
Kindia's Ebola crisis committee has responded to several suspected cases. All but one have tested negative.
