United Nations $1 bln Ebola appeal severely underfunded -UN officials

UNITED NATIONS, Oct 10 (Reuters) – A $1 billion United
Nations appeal to fight Ebola has only been 25 percent funded
and senior U.N. officials warned on Friday that no country was
safe as the world faced a crisis with staggering potential.

“It is the most extraordinary challenge that the world could
possibly face. You sometimes see films about this sort of thing
and you imagine how could such a thing happen. This is more
extreme than any film I have ever seen,” said Dr. David Nabarro,
who is heading the U.N. response to the Ebola epidemic.
