Description

The World Health Organization says that a significant number of health workers trying to control the Ebola epidemic in West Africa have died and that this is jeopardizing control efforts. "On Ebola, the World Health Organisation says that the heavy toll on health care workers in this outbreak further impedes control efforts. To date, more than 240 health care workers have developed the disease in Guinea, Liberia, Nigeria, and Sierra Leone, and more than 120 have died," spokesman for UN secretary-general Stephane Dujarric said.
