Cobra Meeting As UK Doctors Warned Over Ebola
The Government's emergency committee is to discuss the threat from the deadly virus, as fears mount it could spread to the UK.
The outbreak is the largest in history, with the virus killing more than 670 people in Sierra Leone, Liberia, Guinea and Nigeria since February.
Foreign Secretary Philip Hammond has told Sky News no British nationals have been affected so far and there are no cases in the UK.
He said: "However the Prime Minister does regard it as a very serious threat and I will be chairing a Cobra meeting later today to assess the situation and look at any measures that we need to take either in the UK, or in our diplomatic posts abroad in order to manage the threat.
"We are very much focused on it as a new and emerging threat which we need to deal with."
