Angola has shut off a border stretch, with the Democratic Republic of Congo(DRC); due to an alleged Ebola outbreak: suspected to have infected 40 persons, and killed 13 people, since November. Closing the border is aimed at preventing the spread of the disease, according to representation of the Health Department.

Ebola kills 3 in every ten people who contract it, has not cure, and has symptoms including: vomiting, diarrhoea, and internal and external bleeding. No cases, according to the authorities there: have been reported in Angola. All people have been banned from moving across the border strip, and Angolan police, and military personnel are on the lookout for any signs of the deadly man-killer.

South Africa has not closed the border to Zimbabwe, where Cholera has broken out, and recently several people died at morning-side clinic from a disease borne of a Namibian rat. In Africa; it is common for epidemics to spread across borders, however: while South Africa presently aims to treat as best as viable: sufferers from the Cholera Epidemic (even though it denied its own people HIV medication):

Other nations: at times prefer rather to protect their own populations, than cure those suffering.
