Cabinet has decided on measures which will affect South Africans travelling to countries hardest hit by the Ebola virus, Minister in the Presidency Jeff Radebe said on Thursday.

"The minister of health will provide more information on this," he told reporters following Cabinet's regular Wednesday fortnightly meeting.

"I don't want to steal his thunder but the Cabinet had a thorough briefing yesterday [Wednesday] and took certain decisions that will also impact on South Africans who travel to those countries that are affected by Ebola."

Radebe said the Ebola outbreak in West Africa had featured high on the agenda.

"Cabinet was briefed by the Minister of Health Aaron Motsoaledi on developments around Ebola and interventions made by South Africa," Radebe said.

"Cabinet wishes to reiterate that no person has been found positive with the disease."

Motsoaledi was expected to brief media on Thursday afternoon.

Ja I know. You would wish it to be me. Someone that actually wishes a total stranger harm has to be a prize a$$hole, but hey, you're allowed your pathetic masty little wet dreams. I am flattered that you feel so compelled to engage me. It means that I have a massive effect on you some way or another. Flattering I suppose, even though the attention you lavish on me is a real bore.
