To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs what assessment he has made of the outbreak of the ebola virus in western Africa.
We continue to monitor the ebola outbreak in west Africa closely. As of
International health agencies are providing support to affected countries. There is no specific vaccine or anti-viral drug available, so the priority is to contain the outbreak by limiting human-to-human transmission by early identification and care for those affected.
We are keeping our travel advice for British nationals under regular review and in line with WHO guidance. There have been no reports of British citizens being infected and there have been no known imported cases of ebola in the UK to date.
