Nigeria is *banning the transfer of Ebola-stricken corpses across state and national borders.
The precautionary directive comes after Africa's most populous country declared a national state of emergency last Friday joining Liberia and Sierra Leone ahead of it.
The new ban means Ebola victims inside and outside of Nigeria must be buried in the community where they die.
Meanwhile, three patients were quarantined in Canada, Germany and Hong Kong over the weekend following separate trips to the affected West African nations.
All three tested negative to the virus though.
And as for a 75-year-old Spanish priest who *was infected with Ebola while working in Liberia he is in isolation at a hospital in Madrid.
He will be treated with the experimental drug, ZMapp.
