Ebola: UK Issues Tanzania Travel Warning
Ebola: UK Issues Tanzania Travel Warning

The United Kingdom has issued a travel warning on Tanzania following the death of a patient suspected to have had Ebola-related complications.

Tanzania’s government denies the reports, saying there have been no confirmed or suspected Ebola cases.

The UK issued the travel warning as pressure mounts on Tanzania to share more information on the suspicious death.

According to the World Health Organization WHO, a woman with the suspected Ebola virus died in Tanzania’s coastal city of Dar es Salaam.

Close contacts of the deceased person were said to be quarantined in undisclosed locations.

Last week the United States also warned its citizens about a probable Ebola death, amid concerns Tanzania is not giving enough information.

Tanzania’s eastern neighbour, the Democratic Republic of Congo, is grappling with an Ebola outbreak which has killed more than 2,000 people in the past year.
