UN lacks resources needed to fight Ebola

NEW YORK: Chief of the United Nations’ Ebola mission Anthony Banbury says the task force does not have the resources necessary to defeat the epidemic.

Banbury said during an interview that more resources were needed in order to prevent Ebola from spreading further in the West African countries.

“There are villages that are not getting any type of help right now and we definitely do not have the response capability on the ground now, from the international community, from the world to defeat this disease yet,” Banbury said.

Despite the lack of resources, the head of the UN Ebola mission said that the team had done “a pretty good job of mobilising resources” but that it was currently focusing on achieving its targets, including increasing the number of patients receiving treatment.
