The World Health Organization will gather 11 nations to a roundtable, as it calls for “drastic action” to counter the deadliest Ebola outbreak in history.
As of Sunday, nearly 400 deaths from more than 6-hundred-30 cases of the deadly hemorragic fever was recorded across the west African states of Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone.
Medical experts warn it could spread to even more countries. The medical charity group Doctors Without Borders this week called the outbreak “out of control”.
The “significant increase” in cases comes despite the dispatch of 1-hundred-50 experts to Guinea, following the first signs of the virus in March.
