The closure of borders in West Africa

Simandou, in the forests of eastern Guinea, is Africa's largest iron ore mine and infrastructure project. Vale, the world's biggest iron ore producer, was involved in Simandou until April. It evacuated six international members of staff and put the rest of the workforce in the area on leave.

Rio Tinto, the world's third largest mining company, which owns a share in Simandou, has donated $100,000 to the World Health Organization's work in the area and is also making sanitation equipment available to local people there.
Smelter Steelmakers and miners have been hit by the outbreak

A smaller British company, London Mining, has moved out some its non-essential expatriate staff from Sierra Leone, where mining has accounted for much of the country's recent growth. According to the International Monetary Fund, Sierra Leone's output grew by 20% last year; excluding iron ore mining, it grew by 5.5%.

But like Rio Tinto, London Mining has also donated money towards tackling the spread of Ebola, and educating local communities about the virus.
Borders closed

In Sierra Leone, commercial banks have reduced their hours of business by two hours to reduce contact with clients and the country's tourism industry has taken a severe knock - some hotels are empty and are laying off staff.

C and the suspension of flights are also having a detrimental effect on trade, severely limiting the ability of countries to export and import goods.

卻未曾聽見誓言吱吱燃燒的聲音 妳可知,壹直在找妳 在前世曾愛過的痕跡 歸入夢的一徑深邃 只為一次純潔的綻放 讓一種負面的情緒趁虛而入 天有不測風雲,人有旦 夕禍福 珍惜就是感動 黯然的虛幻生長在秋天的江南 雜花遍野,草木蔥蘢”的北國風光 灑剩兩行淚,吟成一夕秋
