World - Ebola-hit Liberia bans sailors from disembarking


Liberia said on Saturday it would deny permission for any crew to disembark from ships at the country`s four seaports until the Ebola epidemic ravaging west Africa was under control. Sailors on commercial ships can normally ask for a `show pass` allowing them to get off the vessel and access the port but the documents are being withdrawn to curb the spread of the virus, said Matilda Parker, head of Liberia`s ports authority. Absolutely no one from on board vessels will be allowed down,` she told AFP. The country`s four seaports, including the Freeport of Monrovia, would adopt a `zero tolerance` approach, Parker said, against an outbreak which has claimed 1,500 lives since the start of the year.
