The government convened an emergency meeting Monday to discuss ways to deal with the deadly Ebola virus that is fast spreading in the West African region.

Hundreds of people have died after being infected with Ebola hemorrhagic fever mainly in the West African region since the first reported outbreak in March.

Officials from the foreign ministry, the health ministry and the nation disease control agency plan to discuss ways to prevent the entry of the virus into the country, according to the Prime Minister's Office.

Also to be discussed are measures to protect South Koreans traveling abroad, and to toughen quarantine and infection prevention for its citizens in the affected area, the office said.

Amid the rising infection fears, the government earlier rejected the entry of three Nigerian students who had planned to attend an international event at a university in Seoul. (Yonhap)
