I've just read about the return of the horrible Ebola virus in west Africa. It sounds unpleasant to say the least and has killed hundreds. I sure hope it doesn't come here...

My fear is shared by UK border and immigration staff. They worry we're not prepared enough to deal with a potential outbreak and want guidance from health officials.

But the World Health Organization and the NHS are assuring people that the UK is not at risk from Ebola - if it comes we can contain it. This puts my mind at ease.

Ebola

There is no vaccine or cure for Ebola, but it can only infect other people via bodily fluids, so it's easy to stop it spreading.

I've been tracking this story for months now and they have lost control of it. It's only a matter of time before it comes here. Sadly I do not believe this country is prepared should it arrive!
