MARINA Advisory on Ebola

WMSI Updates

Starting with Advisory No. 2014-01 Series of 2014, MARINA Administrator Maximo Mejia advised manning agencies to consider the recommendations from the International Chamber of Shipping, International Transport Workers’ Federation, and International Maritime Employers’ Committee on awareness about Ebola cases in Guinea, Sierra Leone, and Liberia.

In a follow up Advisory (MARINA Advisory 2014-22 Series of 2014), the caution had been localised to prevent the potential spread of the Ebola virus in the Philippines in light of the Heightened Advisory Alert from the Bureau of Quarantine.
