The government of Equatorial Guinea has temporarily suspended the issuance of visas from neighboring countries and cancelled regionals flights by its national air carrier, Ceiba International, as measures to protect the country against the spread of the Ebola virus.

This is one of a number of preventive measures taken by the country after it formed a national commission to lead anti-Ebola efforts.

The government is also preparing to purchase additional ambulatory hospitals (tents), train health personnel assigned to these health units and purchase drugs for palliative treatment, among other initiatives.
