The Germany foreign ministry spokesperson on Wednesday in Berlin urged Germans to leave Liberia, Guinea and Sierra Leone due to concern over the Ebola virus.

He said this was the final decision of the Government’s crisis management group, after their meeting on Wednesday on West Africa and the Ebola virus.

The spokesperson said the group decided to request all German citizens in Guinea, Sierra Leone and Liberia to leave immediately.

He, however, said the request did not apply to medical workers or German diplomatic staff and that embassies would remain open.

The Ebola outbreak is the world’s largest and deadliest, as the World Health Organisation declared it an international health emergency.

Over 1,000 people have died of the virus in West Africa.
