No time for time: Guinea has closed its borders with Liberia & Sierra Leone over Ebola

by Isi Esene

Mindful of the havoc a highly contagious virus like Ebola can cause within its borders, the West African country of Guinea has shut its borders against Liberia and Sierra – two countries with reported cases of sick victims.

Guinean government officials disclosed this today saying this decision will enable it better control its spread into the country.

“In order to better control contact” with people suspected of carrying the Ebola virus, “Guinea has decided to temporarily close its land borders with Liberia and Sierra Leone,” government spokesman Albert Damantang Camara said.

There is currently no available cure or vaccine for Ebola, a virus that causes severe fever and, in the worst cases, unstoppable bleeding.

It has claimed many lives across West Africa with two fatal cases in Nigeria.
