The Government says there is no need to panic as there is no case of Ebola in Jamaica.



A release from the Office of the Prime Minister (OPM) a short while ago said there is no case of anyone with the Ebola virus on the island.



The OPM says all precautionary and preparatory steps to prevent the Ebola virus reaching our shores are being taken by the government.



It says Information Minister Senator Sandrea Falconer, who also chairs the National Response Monitoring Committee has called on Jamaicans not to listen to rumors but to be guided by the official information put out by the government.



"The spreading of misinformation is irresponsible and will only serve to cause unnecessary panic throughout the society at this time", Falconer said.
