On Friday 20 November, Belgium ended the measures taken since 20 October 2014 at the national airport. These measures included among other things medical checkup (temperature) of passengers at their arrival on the Belgian soil as well as information messages both at departure and arrival. The regulations on baggage delivery have also been stopped. The decision to remove these measures has been taken in consultation with the government.
Since the implementation of these measures, 64 605 passengers on 326 flights have been checked. 8 passengers underwent complementary tests, but the results did not reveal any case of Ebola infection.
By not suspending the flights to the African countries affected by the infectious disease, Belgium has allowed thousands of social workers to locally fight the epidemic, for which our country has been explicitly congratulated by the WHO.
