World Nigeria: Another Ebola Outbreak is Coming -WHO



The World Health Organization, WHO has announced that another Ebola virus outbreak is inevitable.

However, a new vaccine and rapid-response measures are in place, which means it will be more effectively contained, the head of the World Health Organization said on Thursday.

West Africa experienced an Ebola crisis which began in December 2013, killing over 11,300 people in Guinea, Sierra Leone and Liberia. The virus was imported to Nigeria as well but was quickly contained.

“Scientists do not yet know exactly where in nature the Ebola virus hides between outbreaks, but nearly all experts agree that another outbreak is inevitable,” WHO Chief Margaret Chan said to an audience of scientists, Ebola response coordinators and dignitaries in Guinea.

“When this occurs, the world will be far better prepared,” she added.
