The World Health Organization has designated *Kenya as a high-risk country for the spread of Ebola.
Located in eastern Africa, Kenya is a major transport hub with more than 70 flights per week from West Africa.
Nairobi has yet to announce flight bans to and from the four affected West African states.
This as new figures from the W-H-O show the death toll now standing at 1,69.
There were 1-hundred-28 new cases and 56 new deaths reported this past Sunday and Monday.
Liberia was the worst hit, with 32 new Ebola deaths.
Meanwhile, Canada says it will donate up to 1-thousand doses of its test medication following a W-H-O clearance to use experimental drugs in the fight against this deadly virus.
