British Airways has temporarily suspended flights to-and-from Liberia and Sierra Leone until the end of August because of the worsening outbreak of the deadly Ebola virus. The airline had been flying four times per week to the two countries, traveling first to Freetown before continuing on to Monrovia.

B-A says customers with tickets on those routes are being offered refunds or the ability to re-book flights for a later date. The World Health Organization says well over 800 people in Guinea, Sierra Leone, and Liberia have so far died in the outbreak.
