We have received updates from Ivory P&I and the South American P&I Correspondents (SAPIC) summarising the special measures that are currently in place in West Africa and South America. Ivory P&I have produced a very useful map of the areas affected by the disease and this can be viewed here. The circular issued by SAPIC can be read here.
In view of the complexity and the rapidly evolving situation in West Africa, we have produced the below table with links to related documents on the Ebola Virus Disease outbreak. Please read this information in conjunction with our previous advice as detailed below.
It is recommended that all Members first check the current situation with local port agents in advance of calling at any port in West Africa.
