Focus Shifts to Remote Areas in Fight Against Ebola, Says WHO

One month into the response to an Ebola outbreak in the Democratic Republic of Congo, the focus has moved from urban areas to some of the most remote places on earth, says the World Health Organisation. Dr Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, WHO Director-General, is travelling to the DRC, as well as to the Central African Republic, to reinforce the organisation's response to the deadly disease.
