Queen Elizabeth II will pay tribute in her annual Christmas Day broadcast on Thursday to the “selflessness” of medical staff and aid workers fighting the Ebola epidemic.

She will say how “deeply touched” she was by the volunteers who have gone to work in areas affected by the deadly virus, according to extracts released ahead of the broadcast.

The virus has killed more than 7,500 people, the vast majority in Sierra Leone, Guinea and Liberia.

People caring for the sick or handling the bodies of people infected with Ebola are especially exposed to the virus and 365 healthcare workers have died, most of them local staff.
