MOSCOW, August 26 (RIA Novosti) -Uzbekistan has requested more information about the athletes from Ebola-hit West African countries to make a decision on their admission to the world wrestling championship in Tashkent, a representative of the country’s sanitary authority told RIA Novosti on Tuesday.
“We have requested additional information from the teams’ delegations to have a full view. Now we have received part of the data and are examining it," the representative said.
Earlier on Sunday, Uzbekistan’s Public Health Ministry received a letter from the International Federation of Associated Wrestling Styles (FILA) with a demand to clarify the country’s position on the participation of the athletes from West African countries in the world wrestling competition to be held in the Uzbek capital September 8 to 14.
In particular, seven Nigerian wrestlers and two athletes from Sierra Leone, where the deadly Ebola virus is spreading, plan to participate in the competition.

The disease is a highly deadly, with a 90 percent mortality rate. It is transmitted through direct contact with the blood or bodily fluids of the infected.
