Spain will evacuate its citizen who tested positive for Ebola in Liberia.


President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf has declared three days of fasting and prayer, “to seek God’s mercy” with regards to the Ebola outbreak that has killed 263 people across the country.

The president called on all citizens to fast between 6 a.m. and 6 p.m., starting from Wednesday.

Meanwhile, the Spanish government said that an Air Force plane would leave Madrid on Wednesday to pick up a Spanish priest who has tested positive for the Ebola in Liberia.

The Spanish Defence Ministry said the plane would leave Madrid to pick up the patient, in line with the strict security and quarantine guidelines stipulated by the World Health Organisation (WHO).

The priest is the third foreigner to be evacuated from countries worst hit by Ebola.

WHO officials say the current Ebola outbreak in West Africa which has reached Guinea, Sierra Leone, Liberia and Nigeria, is the deadliest on record.

Over 800 people have been killed by the virus.
