Health officials remain on high alert at the country's ports of entry to monitor for the Ebola virus, Minister in the Presidency Jeff Radebe said on Thursday.

"To date, approximately 525 health and laboratory workers at 13 hospitals... and approximately 270 officials at nine high-risk ports of entry were trained to deal with any eventualities," he told reporters in Cape Town following the executive's fortnightly meeting on Wednesday.

Ebola broke out in some countries in West Africa in March, and has killed close to 5000 people to date.
