Attempts to contain and stop the Ebola virus in Port Harcourt, Rivers state have been boosted as members of the humanitarian group ‘Medecins Sans Frontieres’ (MSF) aka 'Doctors Without Borders' are now in the oil-rich city.

The aid organization has been at the forefront of attempts to bring this year’s outbreak of the deadly disease under control.

The Nigerian Minister of Health, Professor Onyebuchi Chukwu is reportedly also in Port Harcourt to visit the Ebola Isolation & Emergency Operation Centre in the city.

MSF has warned that the Ebola outbreak is being underestimated and that the battle to contain it is being lost.
