The World Health Organisation (WHO) will not enforce a general ban on international trade and travel because of the spreading Ebola Virus Disease (EVD).
However, it urged states should to be prepared to detect, investigate and manage Ebola cases, including at airports.
According to the BBC, WHO has also declared the spread of Ebola in West Africa an international health emergency.
The declaration came after experts convened a two-day emergency meeting in Switzerland.
Officials of the organisation said the possible consequences were particularly serious because of the virulence of the disease.
“A coordinated international response is deemed essential to stop and reverse the international spread of Ebola,” WHO said in a statement.
Nearly 1000 people have died of Ebola and the United Nations has described the outbreak “as an extraordinary event”.
The disease, which started its spread from Guinea, has become a major health threat in West Africa.
Symptoms include high fever, bleeding, vomiting, diarrhea and central nervous system breakdown.
There is no vaccine or cure yet.
