Donors and WHO responded too slowly to West Africa Ebola outbreak - report

DAKAR (Thomson Reuters Foundation) - The World Health Organisation (WHO) and the nations that fund it failed to respond quickly and effectively to the deadly West Africa Ebola outbreak despite repeated warnings by aid agencies, a UK parliamentary committee said on Thursday. Ebola cases are rising dramatically in Sierra Leone, and the House of Commons International Development Committee said the international response was still "being outpaced on all fronts" by the spread of the Ebola virus in the former British colony. The Ebola virus has killed more than 6,800 people and infected around 18,500 since March in West Africa, where poverty, corruption and civil war have left weak healthcare systems unable to cope with the spread of the disease #facebook #China #Japan #Brazil #France #Arabic #Russia #Health #markets #Africa #Argentina #United Kingdom
