Ebola Risk Of Transmission On Planes Still Low But Crisis 'Vastly Underestimated' - WHO


The World Health Organisation (WHO) has warned that the #Ebola crisis in West Africa has been 'Vastly Underestimated' and that the crisis needs extraordinary measures. Although the current recorded death toll stands at 1,069 with many others infected, this might not reflect the true nature of the crisis.

WHO also said that the risk of transmission of Ebola during air travel remained low as the disease is not airborne and that the outbreak was expected to continue for some time.

The numbers of suspected cases in Nigeria continue to climb.
