WHO voices confidence no wider spread of Ebola in Africa

GENEVA/LONDON (Reuters) - The World Health Organization said on Thursday it was still trying to slow the rate of new infections but had "reasonable confidence" that the Ebola virus plaguing three West African countries had not spread into neighbouring states. Asked whether countries such as Guinea Bissau, Mali and Ivory Coast might have cases of the disease crossing their borders without knowing about or reporting them, WHO assistant director general Keiji Fukuda said he considered that unlikely. "I think that there is reasonable confidence right now that we are not seeing widespread transmission of Ebola into the neighbouring countries," Fukuda told a news briefing in Geneva #facebook #India #China #France #markets #Africa #United Kingdom #Latin America

WHO wary of screening arriving passengers for Ebola, but no ban

GENEVA (Reuters) - Screening passengers for Ebola on their arrival may have "a limited effect" in stopping the virus spreading but whether it adds anything to exit screening from affected countries is a decision for governments, the World Health Organization said on Thursday. The advice from the WHO's Emergency Committee on Ebola came a day after the United States said travellers from three West African countries at the heart of the epidemic must fly into one of five major airports for enhanced screening for the virus. "Entry screening may have a limited effect in reducing international spread when added to exit screening, and its advantages and disadvantages should be carefully considered," the committee said in a statement after its third meeting #facebook #China #Japan #Brazil #France #Arabic #Italy #Argentina #Latin America #opinion
