Russia has taken exhaustive measures to prevent the arrival of the deadly Ebola virus from Western Africa, said Anna Popova, chief of the health and consumer rights watchdog Rospotrebnadzor.
"Concerning the Ebola hemorrhagic fever, all necessary measures have been taken to prevent its arrival and spreading," Popova told journalists in Moscow on Friday.
But the risk persists, she also said.
"With such a high incidence and such intensive migration flows all over the world, any infectious disease, including Ebola, can enter any country," Popova said.
