$1 Billion Needed to Fight Ebola

With the Ebola outbreak in West Africa still uncontained, the UN is increasing its calls for funding in the fight against the epidemic from $100 million just a month ago to $1 billion today. This health crisis, the World Health Organization’s assistant director-general says, is “unparalleled in modern times,” with thousands infected thus far and the number of cases projected to double every three weeks if containment efforts are not stepped up. According to the president of the medical charity Doctors Without Borders, the response to the outbreak has been insufficient thus far and the window of opportunity to contain the outbreak is closing.

Despite the presence of 150 experts, the number of reported cases and deaths is still rising daily, threatening the entire region and beyond. The charity Médecins Sans Frontières, or Doctors Without Borders, says the outbreak is out of control. More… Discuss

Ebola Outbreak Reaches Ugandan Capital

Uganda’s president is urging citizens to refrain from having physical contact following the news that a person infected with the Ebola virusdied in the capital. Since the Ebola outbreak began in westernUganda three weeks ago, the virus has claimed at least 14 lives. It initially went undetected because patients were not showing some of the typical symptoms, such as hemorrhaging. Ebola is extremely virulent and often fatal. It has no known cure and no vaccine. Health officials hope that isolating those infected and disrupting the chain of transmission will be sufficient to contain the outbreak. More…Discuss
