Gov’t lifts travel ban on Ebola affected countries


Gambian authorities had in April 2014 imposed travel ban in a bid to prevent the spread of the deadly virus that has so far spared the country. 

Since the outbreak in Guinea in March 2014, Ebola has claimed about 9,000 lives mainly from Guinea (1944), Sierra Leone (3276) and Liberia (3746). Recent times have seen progress in tackling the virus with the wide use of an experimental drug to treat Ebola after successful initial trials, although new cases have risen last week in Guinea for the first time this year.
