GENEVA, August 15. /ITAR-TASS/. A period of at least six months would be required to curb the spread of Ebola virus, which erupted in West Africa claiming over 1,000 lives up to the moment, the president of the Doctors Without Borders (MSF) said on Friday.
According to Dr. Joanne Liu, the control over the virus must be established in half a year. She said that the deteriorating situation is a step ahead of people’s efforts fighting it.
Dr. Liu said particular attention should be paid to Liberia, where 71 new cases of Ebola were registered within the past two days only and 32 people died over the same period of time.
The World Health Organization (WHO) said earlier on Friday that the number of reported Ebola virus cases and deaths "vastly underestimate the magnitude of the outbreak."
WHO officials warned that the outbreak might rage for several more months. Latest reports put the death toll at 1,069 and the number of infected cases at 1,975, mostly in Guinea, Liberia, Sierra Leone and Nigeria. The UN agency has urged donors to allocate $100 million to combat the outbreak.
