A sex worker forum in Kolkata has asked all sex workers in the city to avoid entertaining customers from Africa following the recent outbreak of Ebola virus on the continent.
A member of the Durbar Mahila Samanwaya Committee, with which more than 1,30,000 sex workers in West Bengal are affiliated, confirmed that the organization has issued a warning saying that their members could get into contact with customers who are infected. The committee is also providing classes to its members to help them identify the signs of an Ebola-affected person.
"We have requested the sex workers not to entertain people from African nations as it can be a life risk for them if they get infected by the highly contagious Ebola virus which is causing havoc in some West African countries", the member said.
