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.
