Since January 2014 the global total for Ebola cases is 13, 042 cases including 4, 818 deaths.

The situation in Guinea appears to have stabilized. In Sierra Leone transmission still continues mostly in Freetown.  There are reports that the incidence in Liberia may be declining, the decline has not yet been confirmed.

New entry requirements for Singapore.  Singapore is requiring a visa for nationals from Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone upon entry to the country.  Screening continues for travelers arriving from Ebola affected countries.

The health care worker in Madrid who was diagnosed early October has been declared Ebola free.

It is important to be up to date on travel advisories prior to departure.  Ensure you seek travel health advice a minimum of 4-6 weeks prior to departure for current information, travel recommendations and immunizations for your destination abroad.
