The dramatic recapture of an Ebola patient in Liberia has been caught on camera, after he escaped from a quarantine centre. His escape raised wider fears that some countries are struggling to contain the virus, BBC News reported.
The head of the international medical charity Medecins Sans Frontieres (Doctors Without Borders) has told the UN that the battle against the Ebola outbreak in parts of West Africa is being lost.
“Six months into the worst Ebola epidemic in history, the world is losing the battle to contain it,” Joanne Liu, international president of medical charity Doctors Without Borders, said in a briefing at the United Nations. She faulted world leaders for failing to recognize the severity of the crisis sooner and said charities and West African governments alone do not have the capacity to stem the outbreak.
