Via Vanguard: Ivory Coast bans all flights from Ebola-affected countries. Excerpt:
The Ivory Coast announced Monday that it has banned all flights from countries hit by Ebola as part of steps to prevent the deadly virus from reaching the west African nation.
The government said in a statement that it has forbidden all “carriers from transporting passengers” from these countries.
It has also decided “on the suspension until further notice” flights by its national airline, Air Cote d’Ivoire, to and from these locations.
The government did not name the countries but nearly 1,000 people have died from Ebola in Liberia, Sierre Leone, Guinea and Nigeria, which are all in West Africa.
The government said it has also decided to increase preventive measures at Abidjan airport where “all passengers on arrival will have to have their temperatures taken with an infrared thermometer.”
