The Irish government is to suspend all travel to Sierra Leone for a month, after a man with Ebola died from the virus.
The suspension was announced on Friday by Health Minister Simon Coveney.
He said there was “no evidence to suggest there is any risk to anyone at this stage”.
“We are now going to take this step to ensure that we do not leave anyone behind,” he said.
Sierra Leone, which has become the epicentre of the outbreak, is home to more than two million people, with the number of confirmed cases at 4,527.
A number of countries have announced travel bans, while some have imposed restrictions on flights, including New Zealand, Australia and the US.
The UK has imposed travel bans and travel bans are still in place in the United Arab Emirates, Qatar and Kuwait.
The virus has killed over 2,000 people in Sierra Leone and Liberia.
