WHO Declares Ebola An International Health Emergency

The World Health Organization said on Friday that West Africa's Ebola epidemic constitutes an international health emergency and the virus, which has killed nearly 1,000 people, could continue spreading for months. The U.N. agency's declaration, which follows criticism that it has done too little to fight the disease, is aimed at raising the level of vigilance about the virus which has hit hardest in Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone. The agency said all states with Ebola transmission should declare a national emergency in the face of an outbreak it deemed "particularly serious" but there should be no general ban on international travel or trade.
