“World has learned from the Ebola experience”

13 August 2015

The world has learned from the Ebola experience, according to the head of the World Health Organization (WHO).

Margaret Chan was briefing the UN Security Council on Thursday on peace and security in Africa related to the latest Ebola virus outbreak, which struck the continent in March 2014.

Since then, the disease has claimed the lives of close to 11,300 people, mainly in Guinea, Sierra Leone and Liberia.
