The WHO says at least 600 more doctors are needed in west Africa. Director general Chan:
Our response is running short on nearly everything from personal protective equipment to bodybags, mobile laboratories and isolation wards. But the thing we need most of all is people: healthcare workers. The right people, the right specialists – and specialists who are appropriately trained and know how to keep themselves safe – are most important for stopping the transmission of Ebola. Money and materials are important, but those alone cannot stop Ebola transmission.
At least 1,000 other health workers are needed.
