3

An outbreak of the deadly Ebola virus in West Africa is expected to continue for several more months, the World Health Organization said.

“We fully expect to be engaged for the next two, three, four months,” Keiji Fukuda, assistant director-general for health security and environment, said during a press briefing in Geneva today.

The death toll has risen to 111 with at least 101 people dying from the bleeding disorder in Guinea and 10 people in neighboring Liberia, Stephane Hugonnet, a medical officer at the WHO’s department of global preparedness, surveillance and response, said at the briefing.

  1. Sorry for being so blunt but this is no laughing matter. Dying from Ebola is probably the worst kind of misery one can imagine. Your organs simply disintegrate from the inside. Religion is the absolute last thing on my mind when I read such an article.

  2. I read SPILLOVER by David Quammen and was amazed at the international efforts put into diagnosis and uncovering the causes of infections throughout the world. Hats off to Doctors Without Borders for their work in caring for the infected and for their roll in preventing the spread. One of the great organizations working to prevent “the next pandemic.”
