The health minister has announced that he will soon name a spokesperson who will be responsible for disseminating information in relation to the country’s preparations for any possible introduction of Ebola to Jamaica.



He made the announcement today as he handed over a handbook for mortuaries and funeral homes on how to deal with bodies suspected to be infected with Ebola.



The 20-page document provides guidelines for the handling and storage of bodies.



Health minister, Dr Fenton Ferguson says the handbook forms part of a comprehensive plan to deal with the virus should it appear in Jamaica.



The guidelines are expected to be used by public and private facilities.
