August 5, 2014 – Ebola Virus: Saudi Arabia Bans Hajj Pilgrims From Nigeria, Sierra Leone, Liberia & Guinea From Hajj

The first case of Ebola Virus infection has been reported in Saudi Arabia. A Saudi Arabian man who recently returned from a business trip to Sierra Leone was reported to have shown symptoms of viral Hemorrhagic fever which resembles Ebola virus infection symptoms.

According to Health Ministry, the Saudi man in his 40s was admitted at a hospital in Jeddah after he fell ill.

The ministry said it had taken precautionary measures, including isolating the patient at a specialist hospital and had sent blood samples to an international laboratory in coordination with the World Health Organisation (WHO) for further checks.

Saudi Arabia has been on alert against the spread of the virus from West Africa, where more than 800 people have died.

The Saudi authorities said it would ban pilgrims from Nigeria, Sierra Leone, Guinea and Liberia from performing this year’s hajj taking place in October by suspending issuance of visas to the pilgrims from the affected West African countries for the annual hajj pilgrimage or for other visits to Muslim holy places.

Ebola virus that was first discovered in 1976 has killed over 800 people in West Africa.
