Outrage Mounts Over Weak Global Ebola Response

Fear of the Ebola virus, weak public infrastructures and a slow response by the international public health community and world governments is reversing real progress in Liberia, Sierra Leone and Guinea. A group of prominent Africans launched a 'Call to Action' petition aimed at reversing the losses, starting by lifting quarantines on affected countries. And civil society organisations want the Economic Community of West African State (Ecowas) to name an 'influential and knowledgeable' Special Envoy on Ebola.

With the quarantine lifted in Monrovia's West Point neighborhood, trading slowly recommences in the sprawling business district nearby.
