MONROVIA, Nov 22 : Liberia has set itself the target of halting Ebola by the end of the year, but the battle is far from over in the rest of west Africa.
World Bank President Jim Yong Kim warned on Friday that despite gains against the deadly epidemic the new outbreak in Mali was "very worrisome".
"We must get to zero cases. Ebola is not a disease where you can leave a few cases and say you've done enough," he said at a summit on the epidemic with the leaders of the United Nations, World Health Organization and the International Monetary Fund.
The head of the UN Ebola mission warned that the world was "far, far away" from beating the deadly outbreak and said a huge increase in aid was needed to fight the virus in Africa. ?AFP
