According to the director-general health services Dr Henry Mwebesa, new screening centres have been introduced at Nimule at the Uganda South Sudan border point to strengthen surveillance across the country.
He made the remarks while receiving a donation of 6000 litres of anti-bacterial hand disinfectant from the Japanese International Cooperation Agency.
The hand sanitizers will be used at all screening centres in the country.
