The Director of the National Center for Disease Control (NCDC), Haider Al-Sayeh, has warned of the spread of the Ebola virus in Libya, saying, "the country can not deal with such a dangerous virus like Ebola."

Al-Sayeh added on his Facebook page that Ebola is more dangerous than the Coronavirus epidemic, calling for taking precautions measures for diplomatic flights coming from countries where the virus is spreading, such as Uganda.

The NCDC called on its monitoring and response teams to take preventive measures to prevent the spread of the virus, without revealing whether any infections were recorded in the country.
