Ebola: WHO Emmergency Team Holds Crucial Meeting



The World Health Organization's emergency committee is holding talks to discuss the Ebola epidemic in Geneva to examine screening measures at borders and considering whether stricter travel regulations should be put in place, the BBC says.

Meanwhile, first batches of an experimental vaccine against Ebola are due to arrive to Switzerland.

The vaccine, developed by Canada's public health agency, combines fragments of Ebola with a non-fatal virus and could trigger the immune system to produce the necessary antibodies.

However, the BBC's Imogen Foulkes in Geneva says a fully tested and approved vaccine is not expected to become available for months or possibly years.
