Experimental Ebola drugs needed for "up to 30,000 people"

The calculation highlights the dilemma facing officials considering how to distribute the tiny quantities of unproven drugs that are likely to be available in the near term to fight the deadly disease. The World Health Organisation (WHO) is hoping for improved supplies of experimental treatments and progress with a vaccine by the end of the year, after last week backing the use of untested drugs and vaccines. #Politics #United States #India #Business #Japan #Technology #Arabic #Russia #United Kingdom #Mexico #university

Bulgaria may extend Turkish border fence to bar Syrian, Iraqi refugees

SOFIA (Reuters) - Bulgaria may extend the fence at its border with Turkey to stop more refugees from Syria and Iraq entering illegally, a top interior ministry official said on Wednesday, while the foreign minister warned of "terrorism imports" to the EU member state. The Balkan country is considering adding 130 km (80 miles) of barbed-wire fencing to an existing 33-km fence along the 240-km southeastern border which, the interior ministry's Chief Secretary Svetoslav Lazarov, said would save 2 million levs ($1.36 million) a month on policing the area. "It would be a prohibitively facility," Lazarov told reporters #facebook #Politics #United States #India #Brazil #Technology #Arabic #Russia #Argentina #Mexico
