Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu convened a special meeting on Sunday morning to discuss the spread of the Ebola virus, which has killed more than 4,000 people worldwide.

Isolated incidents of the disease spreading out of Africa to the United States and Spain has sparked concerns that the disease could potentially spread to Israel.

Following Sunday's discussion of Israel's preparedness to deal with the epidemic, it was decided to focus efforts on monitoring travelers arriving in Israel from the most heavily-affected areas - Liberia , Guinea and Sierra Leone.
