Ebola 'quite unavoidable' in Europe but continent at low risk, says WHO

  • The World Health Organization (WHO) has said that instances of Ebola in Europe were “quite unavoidable” given the reality of “extensive travel” between the affected countries in Africa and Europe.

    However, Europe is “still at low risk” and western Europe in particular is "best prepared” to deal with health crises like Ebola, Zsuzsanna Jakab, the European director of WHO, said.

    The remarks come after a nurse in Spain became the first patient to contract the virus outside Africa.
