Ebola Travel Ban - WHO sets emergency meeting [4500+ deaths]
by flukky01 « on: October 22, 2014, 01:30:42 PM »




The World Health Organization's emergency committee is holding talks to discuss the Ebola epidemic.

The meeting in Geneva will examine screening measures at borders and consider whether stricter travel regulations should be put in place.

New rules in the US require travellers from the worst affected countries to arrive at one of five airports.

Meanwhile, a curfew has been imposed in a town in Sierra Leone after two people were shot dead in riots on Tuesday.

The current outbreak of the virus has already killed more than 4,500 people - mostly in Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone.
