Liberian Registry backs IMO advice on Ebola virus
The Liberian Registry has come out in full support of the International Maritime Organization’s recommendation that there should be no general ban on international travel or trade due to the Ebola virus.
Meanwhile, the operation of the US-based registry remains unaffected. Imo cites the recommendations of the World Health Organization (WHO), and indeed advises all member states, as well as to the broader maritime community, shipping companies, ship operators and port and terminal operators, that they follow the WHO guidleines. They advocate that the movement of ships and the handling of cargo and goods to/from affected areas, should continue as normal.
