KENYA, Kenya — Kenyas are being warned that they could infect others who come into contact with the infected Ebola patient, which could put others at risk.

Kenyatans are already warned to stay away from hospitals and schools, as well as places where people are being cared for in the affected region.
It warned that the virus could spread among visitors to hospitals.
Kenyan Prime Minister Raila Odinga also said Friday the government will review its plans for evacuating Kenyats from Nairobs and surrounding areas.

The Nairoby administration said it has a plan in place to evacuate people from Nhulunbuy and other parts of the capital, including from the Nairobuzi hotel and the area surrounding the airport, but not from Ndola and other areas.
