We know some of you might have questions about what's happening in west Africa where at least 3,800 of people have died because of a disease called Ebola.

The UK and America are sending soldiers to help people in the countries affected to build better medical centres to treat those who have the virus.

Health checks on people travelling from Africa have also been introduced at airports in America to stop it spreading.

If there's anything you want to ask about the disease then send us your questions and we will ask medical experts as many of them as we can.
