Ebola Update by Farhan Haq, Deputy Spokesman for the United Nations Secretary-General at the Daily Noon Briefing at UN Headquarters in New York (4 November 2014).

The Head of the UN Mission for Ebola Emergency Response, Anthony Banbury, was in Liberia today, last leg of his visit to the three most impacted countries.
He met with President Ellen Johnson-Sirleaf and visited a logistics hub ran by the World Food Programme.
As you know, besides food assistance to 1.3 million people since April, the World Food Programme is also providing crucial transport and logistics support, particularly to medical partners, in capital cities and in remote areas.
And yesterday, the Chairs of the Peacebuilding Commission Configurations of Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone met to discuss the potential impact of the Ebola crisis on state institutions and political stability.
They agreed to focus on challenges related to state functioning, as well as on anticipating the long-term impact of the crisis on social cohesion, security and political institutions, to complement national, regional and international efforts.
