The World Health Organisation (WHO) says the world's worst outbreak of Ebola that has killed nearly 1 000 people in West Africa represents an international health emergency and could continue spreading for months.
WHO director-general, Margaret Chan, warns that, "The outbreak is moving faster than we can control it."
The United Nations agency says all states where Ebola had passed from one person to another should declare a national emergency and also describe the outbreak as ‘particularly serious’. In addition, WHO says there should be no general ban on international travel or trade.
