WHO, CDC See $100 Million Surge for Africa Ebola Battle

The World Health Organization and the West Africa nations hit hardest by deadly Ebola will pump $100 million into an intensified push against the disease that will deploy several hundred more health workers.

The outbreak, which has killed 729 people, “requires WHO and Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone to take the response to a new level,” said Margaret Chan, WHO’s director-general, in a statement. It requires “increased resources, in-country medical expertise, regional preparedness and coordination.”
