The World Health Organisation, WHO has revealed that ninety eight  million dollars, about thirty five billion naira is needed to contain the ravaging Ebola Virus Disease, EVD in Democratic Republic of the Congo, DRC and Uganda as well as other susceptible nations in Africa and parts of the world.

It, however, regretted the availability of only less than one-third of the sum, leaving behind a shortfall of fifty four million dollars, about nineteen billion naira.

A meeting of the Emergency Committee convened by its Director-General, Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus under the International Health Regulations, 2005, urged countries and responding partners to heed a number of counsel. They include improving preparedness for detecting and managing exported cases; continuous cross-border screening; risk-detecting population movements and sociological patterns; approvals for investigational medicines and vaccines and rapid implementation of optimal vaccine strategies sanctioned by W.H.O’s Strategic Advisory Group of Experts.
