On 8 January 2015, the National IHR Focal Points for Morocco and the United Kingdom have completed contact tracing following the confirmed case of Ebola in a healthcare worker returning from Sierra Leone.
As informed before, the case displayed no symptoms of infectious Ebola throughout the journey. Even though the risk is considered extremely low, as a precaution, Moroccan and UK authorities have classified the passengers into two categories:
- Category 2: passengers seated in the rows immediately in front, behind and in the same row as the EVD case
- Category 1: all other passengers
A total of 31 passengers have been identified as category 2 passengers on the flights from Casablanca to London Heathrow (AT0800) and from London Heathrow to Glasgow (BA1478). All of them have received advice for monitoring their temperature throughout the 21-day period following contact, until 18 January 2015.
The remaining 171 passengers on the flights from Casablanca to London and from London to Glasgow have been identified as category 1 passengers; 167 passengers have been contacted and advised directly by UK authorities. For a further four passengers (non-UK nationals), details have been shared with public health authorities in the relevant countries through respective National IHR Focal Points so that they may follow up their nationals according to their own procedures.
The National IHR Focal Point for Morocco conducted a similar exercise for 112 passengers who shared with the EVD case the flight from Freetown to Casablanca (AT596).
A total of 24 passengers have been identified as category 2 passengers in the flights from Freetown to Casablanca. All of them have received advice for monitoring their temperature throughout the 21-day period following contact, until 18 January 2015.
No high risk contacts have been identified in connection with the EVD case in the United Kingdom.

This is an update regarding the Ebola Virus Disease (EVD) confirmed case in the United Kingdom.
Public Health England (PHE) and Health Protection Scotland (HPS) are undertaking contact tracing on two flights (AT 0800 and BA 1478) following the confirmed case of Ebola in a healthcare worker returning from Sierra Leone on 28 December 2014.
As the case was not displaying symptoms of infectious Ebola virus Disease (EVD) during the journey the risk to passengers has been assessed as extremely low. Most passengers are being contacted to give them information and reassurance only. Those sitting within 2 rows of the case are, as a precautionary measure only, being asked to self-monitor their temperatures for the 21 days following contact, and to contact their local health authority if they develop a fever. No high risk contacts have been identified in connection with the EVD case in the United Kingdom.
As at 31 December 2014, 191 out of a total of 203 UK passengers from both flights have been contacted. 30 of the total number have been identified for self-monitoring, and the remaining passengers have been assessed as requiring information and advice only. For non-UK passengers, details of the numbers and category of contacts have been shared with public health authorities in the relevant countries through respective National IHR Focal Points so that they may follow up their nationals according to their own procedures.
