Ebola outbreak could be controlled in three months
The UN special envoy on Ebola says he hopes that the outbreak can be brought under control within three months.
The number of Ebola cases was currently increasing exponentially, but greater community awareness would help contain the virus.
People were becoming aware that isolating those infected was the best way to prevent transmission, he added.
So far, there have been more than 8,300 confirmed and suspected cases of Ebola, and at least 4,033 deaths.
