Nuestros amigos de ACTE Global, nos remiten este informe de seguridad con motivo del Ébola, que queremos compartir con todos vosotros por el interés.
Nos informan que ampliarán la información en la conferencia de ACTE, que tendrá lugar los días 19-20 de Octubre en Copenhague: Ver Evento.
There are many risks to consider when sending travelers abroad. Considering the hundreds of millions of travelers who will fly this year — and the relatively small number of people infected with Ebola — this viral threat must be viewed with perspective and facts. ACTE leadership believes that travel risk information should foster reassurance and good decisions. For this reason, this association will not just repurpose panic-infused headlines making the rounds as the facts of the day. Our goal is to provide insight that is more help than hype.
What precautions are being taken in Africa and how is business travel being affected?
ACTE’s partner — the African Business Travel Association — reports business as usual from South Africa to most African hubs. While many companies have imposed travel bans to the most badly affected areas (Sierra Leone, Liberia and Guinea), travel to other regions continues. The South African government has banned entry of West Africans from these 3 countries, and has also requested companies not to send travelers to these regions unless for extremely necessary reasons.
Understanding the virus is the first step to traveler safety…
Understanding the virus, how it spreads, and educating travelers on basic hygiene is key. Staying alert for symptoms in yourself and others, and avoiding rural areas in Africa where poor hygiene and limited medical facilities exist is of vital importance. The emergence of the Ebola virus has also emphasized the significance of tracking travelers and having an extraction plan.
How ACTE can be a resource for you…
Through our partnership with the Centre for Aviation (CAPA), ACTE is providing you with information that previously was exclusive only to airline CEOs. Take full advantage of the attached resource to gain an understanding of the impact on African flights and a comparison to past similar events, such as SARS. (Additional information on the ACTE/CAPA member benefits can be found at fairmarketshare.com)
Reviewing this information will provide you with the facts, not the hype, of what is taking place, so you can make proper decisions for your company and travelers.
