Ebola: UN Discussion aims to Mobilize Response


In New York, UN Secretary General Ban Ki-Moon opened a high-level meeting on Ebola. The meeting, which is still on-going, brings together global leaders to focus international attention to combat the outbreak of the disease. Among the attendees are US president Barack Obama, World Bank President Jim Yong Kim, Liberia’s President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf, Ernest Bai Koroma of Sierra Leone and Guinean President Alpha Conde. The meeting comes as new studies warn of an exponential climb in the coming weeks unless swift action is taken to control the spread of the virus.
