UN health body continues emergency meeting on Ebola outbreak
The World Health Organization is holding an emergency meeting for a second straight day to analyze whether the current Ebola outbreak in West Africa constitutes a public health emergency of international concern.
If the WHO considers the current situation as sufficiently worrisome then the emergency committee will recommend to the director general of the WHO to issue an alert.
The UN health agency will recommend appropriate temporary measures to reduce international spread of the virus.
The U.S. Center for Disease Control has maintained its highest-level alert since Wednesday which is reserved for the most serious public health emergencies.
The latest figures from the WHO say this Ebola outbreak has killed 9-hundred-32 people from slightly over 17-hundred suspected and confirmed cases mostly in Liberia, Sierra Leone and Guinea.
