Since March, the Ebola virus has claimed more than 1000 lives in Sierra Leone, Liberia and Guinea.

Nigeria has recorded three deaths, and President Goodluck Jonathan has declared the crisis a national emergency to try to prevent the spread of the virus.

In its most populous city, Lagos, measures are being taken to deal with the outbreak, visible from the airport to street food stands.

Tomi Oladipo reports from there.
