WHO: US experts not needed to fight Ebola outbreak in Congo

SeattlePI.com Monday, 3 December 2018
GENEVA (AP) — The head of the World Health Organization says it doesn't need experts from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention or any other U.S. government agency to fight the deadly Ebola outbreak in Congo, insisting: "We can cover it." WHO Director-General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus says the U.N. health agency mostly needs the United States to continue the financial and other support it has provided. He noted the U.S. and many other developed countries have security guidelines that prevent deployments of experts in conflict zones like the Ebola-hit area of eastern Congo. Rebel groups there have complicated efforts to battle what is now the world's second-deadliest Ebola outbreak.
