|WELLINGTON Ryan Kent Jersey , Nov. 13 (Xinhua) -- New Zealand's health authorities are ready to deal with a range of possible scenarios involving the deadly Ebola virus, Health Minister Jonathan Coleman said Thursday after an exercise in Wellington.
"While the risk to New Zealand remains low, we cannot guarantee that we won't get a suspected Ebola case," Coleman said in a statement.
"It is possible that at some stage a traveler will arrive from an Ebola-affected country who develops symptoms consistent with Ebola. In that instance, despite it being much more likely that they are suffering from another illness Roberto Firmino Jersey , Ebola will need to be ruled out," he said.
"For this reason, there is real value in exercising and testing response mechanisms for a range of possible scenarios."
The Ministry of Health led representatives from the departments of health, immigration, customs Ragnar Klavan Jersey , police and ambulance in two scenarios involving someone falling ill on a flight to New Zealand and people reporting to a hospital after returning from West Africa.
"Feedback from those evaluating the exercise today was that we have the right systems in place and a high level of preparedness," said Coleman.
"The true value of any exercise is finding areas where we can be making improvements. I will be interested to see what has been identified and what agencies will be putting in place to address any gaps."
Additional border screening was in place for travelers from Ebola-affected countries and 76 had been screened since early August, although none had caused concern.

China's first domestically-built aircraft carrier was not launched on Sunday Philippe Coutinho Jersey , the anniversary of the founding of the People's Liberation Army Navy (PLAN), as some military fans hoped it would be. But these enthusiasts believe the day is approaching as they discovered that the shipyard where it is being built started to flood the drydock containing the carrier on Sunday.
"Fans captured pictures showing that the water is already touching the hull. Though it was not launched today, it will be in no more than a few days," Chen, 30 Pedro Chirivella Jersey , a naval enthusiast from Jinhua, East China's Zhejiang Province, told the Global Times.
He has been updating his Weibo account - which is called General Commander of the Liaoning and has over 320,000 followers - with news and pictures of the carrier.
"We have dreamed for decades of a domestically-built aircraft carrier. We don't mind waiting for a few more days," said Chen Ovie Ejaria Jersey , who is also a moderator of a popular naval discussion forum online.
Many people rushed to the Dalian shipyard in Northeast China's Liaoning Province on Sunday after reading articles suggesting the launching ceremony for the Type 001A would be likely held that day.
Duan, a 20-year-old military fan working in Dalian, is one of them. "If it was launched on Sunday, it would be more meaningful. But it is excusable that it wasn't. Carrier construction is a huge project. Speed is always second to security," he told the Global Times.
Keeping an eye on the carrier has become an integral part of his life since he came to Dalian last year.
"I go to see it once a week. From a rusty hull and being covered with various cranes Nathaniel Clyne Jersey , vehicles and containers to a cleared deck, it finally started to look like it does today, which was quite exciting," Duan said.
To get a look at the ship, he regularly takes the city's light rail route which passes the shipyard. He gets a view of the ship for about 20 seconds each time.
Song Mohamed Salah Jersey , 16, a local high school student, also went to see the carrier on Sunday. "It's a big day. About 200 people gathered and waited for hours, wishing to witness the launch," he said.
"My family lived near the shipyard when I was in primary school Marko Grujic Jersey , and I could always view the Varyag, [the Soviet-era carrier purchased from Ukraine, which was refitted and is now in service as the Liaoning] from an overpass," he said. "I'm thrilled we will soon have a domestically-produced one."
Speculation that the ship would be launched on April 23 - the 68th anniversary of the founding of the PLAN - first arose in late March when photos showing that scaffolding had been removed and red undercoat had been painted below the ship's waterline were posted online.
When asked about this at a regular press briefing on March 30, Wu Qian Mamadou Sakho Jersey , spokesperson for the country's Ministry of National Defense responded that "it is being outfitted with equipment and the work is progressing smoothly. As for further news, I believe we won't keep the public waiting for too long."

The fans believe that the Type 001A will hit the water in a few days. The news that China Shipbuilding Industry Corporation Chairman Hu Wenming recently inspected the Dalian shipyard twice in one month made them feel even more certain.
"April 23rd or March 27 in the lunar calendar are not suitable days for launching due to the tides. I reckon that the ship will be tested on the water by the end of the month," Chen told the Global Times. The gravitational forces which contribute to the tides are exceptionally
