GENEVA, April 8 The World Health Organisation
(WHO) said on Tuesday that it expected to have to confront an
outbreak of the deadly virus Ebola in West Africa for the next
two to four months.
But the United Nations agency said it was not recommending
any travel restrictions to Guinea, which has a total of 157
suspected and confirmed cases including 101 deaths, or Liberia
which has 21 suspected and confirmed cases including 10 deaths.
"We fully expect to be engaged in this outbreak the next two
to three to four months before we are comfortable that we are
through it," Dr. Keija Fukuda, WHO assistant director-general,
told a Geneva news briefing.
