Liberia has suspended all football activities in an effort to control the spread of the deadly Ebola virus, BBC reports. There was a risk of infection because football is a contact sport, the football association said.
The number of people killed by the virus in West Africa has now reached 672, according to new UN figures.
A major regional airliner, Asky, said it had halted flights to the Liberian and Sierra Leonean capitals because of growing concerns about the virus. It is the second airline company to take such a decision, following the deadliest Ebola outbreak ever.
Ebola kills up to 90 per cent of those infected, but patients have a better chance of survival if they receive early treatment.
It spreads through contact with an infected person’s bodily fluids. The outbreak was first reported in Guinea in February. It then spread to Liberia and Sierra Leone.
