Guinea has closed its borders with Sierra Leone and Liberia in an attempt to stop the spread of ebola in West Africa.
The outbreak – the most serious since the disease first emerged in Africa over 30 years ago – has so far killed nearly 1,000 people in the three countries this year.
“We have provisionally closed the frontier between Guinea and Sierra Leone because of all the news that we have received from there recently,” Health Minister R? Lamah told a news conference.
She said the border has also been closed with Liberia.
