The World Health Organisation has warned West Africa to prepare for the possibility of the deadly Ebola virus spreading to Mali, the Ivory Coast and Senegal.
"We want other countries in West Africa to be ready - bordering countries, Ivory Coast, Mali, Guinea Bissau - to prepare themselves in case people affected with the disease may be also travelling," WHO medical officer Dr. Pierre Formenty said in Geneva today.
The WHO is not considering the recommendation of travel or trade restrictions on the three countries already affected by the epidemic - Guinea, Sierra Leone and Liberia.
An infectious diseases doctor who contracted the Ebola virus at work in Guinea has spoken to ITV News about beating the disease.
Could the deadly virus which has killed over 400 people in West Africa spread to Britain and the rest of Europe?
The clinic in Guinea is fully aware of the deadly nature of the virus. On one side are the patients - on the other is the morgue.
