Indian Prostitutes Warned Off Africans
The disease is transmitted through contact with the bodily fluids of an infected person
Commercial sex workers in India have been warned to stay away from African clients due to the Ebola virus which is currently plaguing some countries in the Western part of the continent.
The directive was given to prostitutes operating in India’s largest city, Kolkata, Sonagachi.
Durbar Mahila Samanwaya Committee, an Indian NGO informed a gathering of 130,000 sex workers about the risks involved if contact was made with an Ebola patient.
The DMSC also provided training for different classes of sex workers to enable them know if a person had been infected with Ebola.
