However, the news is yet to be officially confirmed.

On October 24, 2014, North Korea temporarily banned the entry of foreign tourists due to fears of the Ebola virus.

On October 29, the country's State Emergency Anti-epidemic Committee announced more strict measures against the possible spread of ebola and required all foreign visitors to be quarantined for 21 days and receive medical observation.

Foreigners from ebola-hit regions were requested to stay at certain hotels for 21 days and resident personnel at diplomatic missions and international institutions were subjected to the quarantine at their residences.

During the past few months when the quarantine was in place, travelers at airports and border crossings were asked to have their  body temperatures monitored and fill in a registration form upon arrival.
