The European Commission called for 5,000 doctors to be sent from EU states to combat West Africa's Ebola epidemic.

In a tweet, EU Health Commissioner said he had so far reached 14 EU ministers, urging them to send more medical staff to Ebola-hit countries.

The source said the EU's Ebola coordinator, was also reaching out to ministers, with more funds and logistic materials on the list of demands.

European officials were casting a wide net, asking for both medical staff directly from national authorities as well as volunteers operating through charities.
