Chinese health officials say preventative measures are underway though no Ebola cases have been reported in this country.
Meanwhile African countries have pledged joint effort in fighting against the outbreak of the virus, which has killed over 9 hundred in the region.
CRI's Yu Yang has more.
Song Shuli is from the National Health and Family Planning Commission.
She says the commission has strengthened its communication with World Health Organization to better monitor and predict the spread of the Ebola viru.
"According to the evaluation from WHO, the risk of the virus spreading beyond Africa is still low. A prevention and control plan has been laid out which says local medical institutions must report any confirmed or suspected Ebola cases directly to our commission within two hours"
A Hong Kong woman travelling from Kenya was suspected of catching the virus late last month.
Though her test result showed negative for the disease later, the news still caused a panic.
The health official Song Shuli says given the outbreak of the virus in some West African countries, China has stepped up border control of inbound travellers from related countries.
Both Liberia and Nigeria have declared a state of emergency due to the outbreak.
The vice Liberian President, Joseph Bokai Sr.
So we also wanted to restrict the movement, to give the chance, to be able to control the disease, so I think a state of emergency is in place for the moment, to be able to give us a chance to deal with the situation effectively."
Meanwhile health ministers from some African countries have pledged joint effort in preventing the virus from spreading further.
This comes as a border area between Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone is identified as a hotspot of transmission by WHO experts.
Dr Francis Kasolo is WHO's Regional office for Africa.
"And most of the cases that have gone out of these particular intense area of transmission, or rather that have occurred in the three countries, have come from these intense area of transmission. So one of the things that was decided was to place these areas under closer scrutiny in terms of limiting travel into and out of those particular areas."
The outbreak, by far the largest in the nearly 40-year history of the disease, has infected 1,711 people and killed 932 this year in Guinea, Liberia, Nigeria and Sierra Leone.
For CRI, this is Yu Yang.
