Gambia bans flights coming from Ebola-affected countries

Gambia has banned flights coming from west African countries affected by Ebola.

According to staff at Banjul International Airport, President Jammeh made an order to all airlines to cancel all flights from Sierra Leone, Liberia, and Guinea in an attempt to stop the spread of the deadly virus Ebola. This means that people who are traveling are now stranded in those countries.

Brussels Airlines will still be permitted to drop people off but cannot pick up any passengers.

To date, 168 cases have been identified in Guinea, which is the worst in history. One hundred and eight people have died since the start of the year. According to the World Health Organization, the outbreak started in the southern forests but spread to a city on the Atlantic coast that is home to two million people.

Liberia has 21 suspected cases and 10 deaths, Mali has suspected cases, and Sierra Leone has no suspected cases but is still on the list of banned countries.
