Nigerian President Goodluck Jonathan has declared the outbreak of Ebola “a national emergency” and approved more than $11m (£6.6m) in funding to help contain it.

The move comes after the World Health Organization (WHO) said the spread of the virus in West Africa was an international health emergency.

Meanwhile, a man who recently visited Nigeria is being treated in a hospital in Canada amid fears he may be infected with Ebola.
