The Ebola virus sweeping West Africa appears to be getting worse. According to the World Health Organization, there are over 1,300 suspected and confirmed cases of the disease in the region. Nearly 730 people have died so far in Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone. Now, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is preparing to transfer two Americans afflicted with Ebola to Atlanta to treat them. RT’s Manila Chan gives the latest update on the spread of the deadly disease.
An outbreak of the deadly Ebola virus in West Africa is out of control, but the World Health Organisation (WHO) said it can be stopped with more resources and tougher measures.
The WHO has summoned an Emergency Committee between August 6-7 to decide if the outbreak constitutes a public health emergency of international concern and to recommend measures to tackle it.
The worst hit are Sierra Leone, Liberia and Guinea. Nigeria recorded its first Ebola case last week.
