The Minister of Health, Dr Jane Ruth Aceng, has warned that the government may be forced to ban travelling upcountry for Christmas should the Ebola cases increase.

Dr Aceng said her ministry is closely monitoring the Ebola infection rates and that at an appropriate time, they will advise on whether it is prudent to ban the public from travelling upcountry for Christmas.

The meeting was organised by African Centre for Media Excellence (ACME) to equip editors with basic information on the Ebola virus to enable accurate, responsible, and ethical reporting on the outbreak; to curb the spread of fake news and misinformation.
