Australian quarantine rules have been tightened for people travelling to and from West Africa and the US, with authorities tightening the rules around who can enter the country and who cannot.
Key points:The restrictions are aimed at stopping people from getting infected in the US and LiberiaThe government says there is no risk to the Australian public but questions whether the measures are necessaryThe restrictions were announced in the wake of the death of a Liberian man in Australia.
Mr Ochoa said the new measures were “absolutely necessary” to protect the country from the spread of the virus, adding that it was “extremely important” that the measures were followed.
“We are also making certain we do not lose any people who are in the country for humanitarian reasons,” he said.
“This is something that is happening in our country as well, but we need to make sure that we do it correctly.”

The measures are designed to stop people from travelling from countries where the virus has been detected and bringing in infected people.
It is also meant to stop the spread and transmission of the Ebola Virus Disease.
“What is required here is not only to prevent the virus spreading but also to stop those people coming into the country,” Mr Ochoan said.
Mr Duncan’s body was found on the shores of the Australian-controlled islands of Papua New Guinea in August.
He had been travelling to the region with his family.
The Liberian government said he had contracted the virus from an infected family member.
“He was not in a position to contact his family, and was isolated at a private residence and is not in contact with anyone else in his family,” the government said.
“He has not tested positive for Ebola.”
He had not shown symptoms, and it was not known how long he had been in Australia or if he had travelled to West Africa.
His family told the ABC he had not been seen in a long time, and their home in Australia had been shut down.
Mr Wieland was the first person to be diagnosed with the virus in Australia, and has since died.
Australia’s quarantine laws have been relaxed in the last week.
The new rules were announced on Tuesday and apply to all people coming from any of the countries where Ebola is detected, regardless of their country of origin.
The government has also said there is “no risk to Australian public”.
But it is understood there is concern about the new restrictions.
Mr Nel, who travelled from Liberia to Australia in February, told ABC Radio Canberra the restrictions were “extremely difficult” to follow.
“I was not aware of it at the time, but now I know they are there, and I have to get to my home, and then the quarantine is going to be there for two weeks, and they are making me get out and then we are going to take care of that,” he told the station.
Mr Nesel said he feared his family could be put in quarantine and have to leave the country.
“There are some people in our community that have been living here for 10 or 12 years and we do have a few people that are married, so that is a problem, and that is the worst case scenario,” he added.
