At Lago's airport, Nigerian health workers are stepping up efforts to stop Ebola entering the country. 8 people, who last week treated the country's first case, are now suspected of having the disease themselves. The possible spread of the virus by passengers has prompted British airways to suspend flights to Sierra Leone and Liberia until the end of the month, because of what it calls the deteriorating public health situation.
-At the moment, we don't think it's worth screening people at the airports. We'd have a system in place already, so that those who come, for example, to UK airports, who are unwell, and you let people know that they are unwell. We have a system to investigate them and detect viruses in them including Ebola as soon as possible.
And an American nurse infected with the virus while treating patients in Liberia has been flown back to the US for treatment. / Nancy Writebol has been given an experimental antibody drug called, ZMapp, and is responding to the relief of her family.
-I can't imagine this, but it's amazing to think that my mom might not be only able to help those who she was trying to help there in country, but by her suffering in this and by her just going through it, she may be able to help countless more through that being able to understand what's going on to her body and develop a cure and resources to help those who are suffering right now.
The colleague Doctor Kent Brantly is already in quarantine in Atlanta. He walked off the ambulance, reportedly well enough to stand within an hour of being given the drug.
-It could very well be a game-changer. Now this as ZMapp drug has been in development for a number of years, and it has never really been tested on humans until now, they had to have somebody who was otherwise probably going to die. And for all we know, it looks like / the drug may have saved Doctor Brantly's life.
But it's unlikely that enough of the drug could be made to hold the current Ebola outbreak. Medical charities, working in the region, say more resources are needed to help trace and quarantine anybody who's been in contact with known victims.
It's a challenge with porous borders and mobile population. But they say it's the only way of slowing the spread of the virus.
