Conakry, Jumada II 13, 1437, Mar 22, 2016, SPA — Liberia closed its border with Guinea this week after a flare-up of Ebola in Guinea, Information Minister Lenn Eugene Nangbe told dpa on Tuesday.
The closure of the borders on Monday was a precautionary measure to prevent the spread of Ebola from Guinea into Liberia, Nangbe said.
“We have sent military, police and medical personnel and increased surveillance in the towns and villages along the border, which is very porous,” he said.
He said the borders would remain closed until further notice.
