World Bank: 5,000 More Health Workers Needed in Ebola Fight

Addis Ababa, October 28 (QNA) – The Ebola outbreak in West Africa requires at least 5,000 additional health workers, World Bank President Jim Yong Kim said Tuesday.

The World Bank president expressed concern over how to find the health workers “with the fear factor going out of control in so many places.” “I put a call to all medical practitioners around the world to keep to their oath to provide treatment.

We have to step up our efforts,” he said.

Dlamini-Zuma said the AU had mobilized 2,000 health workers. Ban said he was worried about the “stigmatization” of health workers returning from humanitarian missions in West Africa.(QNA)
