A doctor in Nigeria`s oil industry hub of Port Harcourt has died from Ebola fever, after he was infected by man linked to the first case in Africa`s most populous country, the Health Ministry said on Thursday.
The leader of Nigeria`s Islamist group Boko Haram said his fighters were now ruling the captured northeastern town of Gwoza "by Islamic law", in the first video to state a territorial claim in more than five years of violent insurrection.
World Health Organization has advised India to further strengthen its infection control mechanism and surveillance to prevent an outbreak of Ebola virus disease (EVD) like the current one in western Africa.
The World Health Organization today said that it had set up a task force with the global airline and tourism industry in an effort to contain the spread of Ebola. The UN agency said it was working hand in hand with the International Civil Aviation Organization, the World Tourism Organization, Airports Council International (ACI), the International Air Transport Association and the World Travel and Tourism Council.
