Travelers on French airports were told to stay put after the country declared a lockdown for the new Ebola outbreak.

The move comes after a French woman died of Ebola on Saturday.

French President Francois Hollande said all flights will be stopped until all measures are in place to control the spread of the virus.

French airports were closed on Friday after a woman died on Friday, triggering a nationwide lockdown.

The French authorities are taking all necessary measures to control public health risks, including quarantine, and to ensure public health precautions are being implemented, Mr Hollande said in a televised statement.

“I am asking the public to continue their regular activities in public,” Mr Hollande added.

“And I am asking that they stay at home and remain vigilant and vigilant in their daily lives.”

There were fears the closure could spread the Ebola virus in France, a country of about 7.6 million people.

The disease is transmitted through contact with bodily fluids of infected people.

More than 10,000 people have tested positive for Ebola in France since it was first detected in the region in March, the World Health Organization said.

More than 1,600 people have died in Guinea, Sierra Leone and Liberia from the virus, and at least 2,100 have died from the disease in Nigeria.

France is one of several countries that has already declared a state of emergency, meaning all flights are to be suspended until a plan for containment is in place.

Meanwhile, in Sierra Leone, the death toll from the new epidemic has reached at least 38.

It has been reported that four more people died of the disease, the country’s health minister, David Mutharika, told Reuters news agency on Friday.

The World Health Organisation has reported at least 1,872 deaths and more than 20,000 cases.

Health workers have been placed on high alert in Sierra Madre, the capital of the north-eastern province of Freetown.

There are fears the outbreak will spread in the area, where many of the affected areas are close to Sierra Leone’s border with Guinea.

Authorities have warned people in areas that border the border, such as Freetoun, to be vigilant and to avoid all contact with others.

Freetown, which is about 30 kilometres (20 miles) from the border with Liberia, has seen more than 50 deaths from Ebola since the virus was first identified in October.

About 100 people have also died in Liberia from Ebola.

In Guinea, where about 1.3 million people have been infected with the disease so far, officials have closed most of the countrys borders with Sierra Leone.

And in Liberia, the number of deaths has risen to at least 17.

Some 1,500 people are still being treated for the disease at a hospital in the southern city of Monrovia, health authorities said.

However, a government spokesman in the capital Monroto said the number at the hospital was lower than at other facilities in the country.

Last week, health workers were given extra equipment to protect them against Ebola.
