The head of the U.N. Ebola mission in West Africa has said there is a “huge risk” of the Ebola outbreak expanding beyond the hard-hit region.
Anthony Banbury told BBC News that “there is a huge risk to the world that Ebola will spread” if it continues to ravage Liberia, Guinea and Sierra Leone, where it has killed almost 7,000 people.
“That is why it is so important to get down to zero cases as quickly as possible,” Banbury told BBC News.
The U.N. Mission for Ebola Emergency Response said last week that it did not expect to meet the ambitious goals it had set for Dec. 1 in its effort to halt the Ebola outbreak in West Africa.
