Ebola poses 'very serious threat' to #Britain: Foreign Secretary

LONDON (AFP) - The Ebola outbreak in west Africa poses a "very serious threat" to Britain, Foreign Secretary Philip Hammond said on Wednesday, as England's public health authority warned the virus was out of control. Mr Hammond was to chair a meeting of Cobra, the government's crisis response committee, to assess Britain's preparations to cope with any possible outbreak of the disease. One person in Britain has been tested for Ebola, the Department of Health (DoH) ministry confirmed, but the tests proved negative. Reports suggested he had travelled from west Africa to central England. Health professionals have been warned to be vigilant for signs of the deadly virus. "As far as we are aware, there are no British nationals so far affected by this outbreak and certainly no cases in the UK," Mr Hammond told Sky News television.
