Sagicor donating $4-m machine to boost Ebola screening

“We are concerned for the safety of all Jamaicans. The potential threat of this health hazard is something that requires a collective effort, and our purchase and donation of this equipment is part of our contribution to the welfare of the entire Jamaican society,” Sagicor Group President Richard Byles said at a press conference with National Security Minister Peter Bunting at Sagicor’s New Kingston head office.

“It is vital that we do all that is necessary to protect our citizens and the economic stability of this country,” Byles added.

Bunting said that the move by Sagicor to donate the fever scan machine was “a clear indication of a private sector entity recognising its crucial role in support of public safety and security”.

“Sagicor’s decision to volunteer assistance is yet another example of how citizens and organisations can unite for change,” said Bunting.

“This timely contribution should serve as an inspiration to others to join the Government as we work to protect our borders from new and emerging threats,” he added.

According to the World Health Organisation, the initial symptoms of Ebola include fever, weakness, muscle pain, and sore throat, all of which can be overlooked as symptoms of other common illnesses.
