    MSF says Ebola outbreak moving too fast to handle


    The warning came just a day the World Health Organization said the scale of the epidemic had been vastly underestimated and that "extraordinary measures" were needed to contain the killer disease.
    WHO had said in a statement late Thursday it was coordinating "a massive scaling up of the international response", in a bid to tackle the epidemic that has claimed lives in Guinea, Liberia, Nigeria and Sierra Leone.

    "Staff at the outbreak sites see evidence that the numbers of reported cases and deaths vastly underestimate the magnitude of the outbreak," it said.

    "The outbreak is expected to continue for some time. WHO's operational response plan extends over the next several months."

    • TV8 news said they are drastically underestimating the news. Deaths of 1000 and 2000 infected. People on the TKMR board were saying up to 100 health care workers are infected. How can that be with only bodily fluid transfers. (cant happen). Maybe a couple mistakes as they take the necessary precautions of full gowns. I believe it can be transferred other ways? Some thing is not right with the virus. I pray it don't mutate and change many viruses do.
