Thomas Frieden: Ebola outbreak biggest challenge since AIDS

0

CDC Director Dr. Thomas Frieden has said that the Ebola outbreak in West Africa is unlike anything since the emergence of HIV/AIDS.

A fast global response could ensure that it did not become “the next AIDS,” the director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) said.

The presidents of Liberia, Sierra Leone and Guinea appealed for more aid to help fight the disease.

The Ebola outbreak has killed more than 3,860 people, mainly in West Africa.

More than 200 health workers are among the victims.
