• Canada boosts restrictions for travelers from Ebola-hit nations


    OTTAWA: Canada on Monday (Tuesday in Manila) ramped up travel restrictions for people returning from Ebola-stricken countries, officials said, and said “high risk” travelers should be closely monitored for symptoms or admitted to a special facility. People returning from Liberia, Guinea or Sierra Leone who have come into contact with the virus are told to report to local health officials and self-monitor for up to 21 days, Canada’s Public Health Agency said. These “high risk” travelers could be asked to quarantine at a “facility” for the 21-day incubation period, but the agency did not specify what this could entail.
