YAOUNDE Aug 19 Cameroon has closed all its
borders with Nigeria in a bid to halt the spread of the Ebola
virus, state radio said on Tuesday.
The virus has killed more than 1,200 people in four West
African countries, four of whom have died in Nigeria.
"The government has taken the decision to protect its
population because it is much better to prevent than cure the
Ebola virus," Minister of Communications and government
spokesman Issa Tchiroma Bakary told Reuters.
