The Ebola outbreak is a continuing problem in West Africa. At present there have been over 1400 deaths from Ebola with over 3000 cases reported with Liberia being the worst affected country. Other countries affected include Sierra Leone, Guinea, Nigeria and Senegal. 20 healthcare workers have died whilst trying to treat patients with the disease.
At present the WHO are not enforcing any travel restrictions, however some of the affected countries may close their borders with little or no notice. Travellers are advised to contact their airline and the embassy of the country they are travelling to, so they are aware of current restrictions.
If you have visited West Africa with the past 3 weeks and start to develop symptoms such as fever, headache, vomiting and diarrhoea on return, contact your GP immediately.
