Exclusive: Emergency centers needed to contain Ebola in West Africa – U.N.

UNITED NATIONS (Reuters) – The worst outbreak of Ebola on record can be contained if countries quickly build and staff treatment centers in West African nations hardest hit by the deadly virus, the United Nations Ebola response coordinator said on Wednesday.

“If we can reduce the number of people who are passing on their infection to others by about 70 percent, then the outbreak will come to an end,” Dr. David Nabarro, the senior U.N. coordinator for the international response to Ebola, told Reuters.
