WHO: Spread across Europe ‘unavoidable’

7 Oct, 2014

WHO European director Zsuzsanna Jakab says that while more cases will spread in Europe, the continent should be well prepared to control the disease.

Such imported cases and similar events as have happened in Spain will happen also in the future, most likely. It is quite unavoidable … that such incidents will happen in the future because of the extensive travel both from Europe to the affected countries and the other way around. The most important thing in our view is that Europe is still at low risk and that the western part of the European region particularly is the best prepared in the world to respond to viral haemorrhagic fevers including Ebola.
