Ethiopia steps up security against Ebola

Ebola Outbreak

Security has been stepped up against the Ebola virus at Ethiopia’s main airport, but Ethiopia Airlines will continue flights into Nigeria.

Ethiopia Airlines says the chance of Ebola spreading on a plane is quite low. It does not fly to Liberia, Sierra Leone or Guinea.

Everyone coming into the capital, Addis Ababa, from West Africa is being check at a special quarantine center at the airport. The capital has also set up an isolation ward at one of the main hospitals, in preparation for the worst.

CCTV’s Girum Chala reports.
