Kenya travel advisory: More people than ever in Kenya will use mobile devices
Kenya Travel Advisory has issued an advisory to its users that says it has received “more than 10,000” calls and emails asking for advice on the safety of using mobile phones in Kenya.
Kenya Travel Advisory said on its website on Wednesday that it has a “strong commitment to protecting the health and safety of our users and our guests”.
“The vast majority of calls and messages have come from people concerned about the risk of exposure to infectious disease, including Ebola,” it said.
“The number of people who have contacted us has been extremely encouraging and we thank them for their concerns.”
This advisory is intended to inform users of the risk associated with using mobile phone devices in Kenya, with the main focus on ensuring they are not exposed to infectious diseases.
“In addition to the health risks, we advise users to make their mobile phone use as discreet as possible.”
The advice to stay away from crowds and places where there are a lot of people is also important.
“The Kenya Travel advisory, issued in partnership with the World Health Organisation, comes after the outbreak of Ebola in Guinea and Liberia, where at least 1,000 people have died.
Ebola has killed more than 9,000 of those affected, mostly in the Democratic Republic of Congo.
