August 23, 2014

South Africa said on Thursday that due to fears over the spread of the Ebola virus it was banning travelers from Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone from entering the country, apart from its own citizens.

South Africans returning home from these areas will be permitted entry but undergo a strict screening process, a health ministry statement said.

β€œFor citizens of South Africa who wish to travel to these countries, they will be requested to delay their travels unless it is also absolutely essential for them to travel to these countries,” Health Minister Aaron Motsoaledi said.
