US health officials will actively monitor health workers who have treated Ebola patients in West Africa, under new rules.

Updated guidelines issued yesterday will require most medics to be checked for symptoms for 21 days but will not require quarantine or isolation.

The UN Secretary General has condemned enforced quarantine measures.

The current Ebola outbreak in West Africa has infected more than 10,000 people and killed almost 5,000.
