The International President of Medecins Sans Frontieres, MSF, (doctors without borders), Joanne Liu, said in Geneva on Friday that it would take about six months to bring the Ebola epidemic in West Africa under control.

She said the situation was like “wartime’’ and required greater leadership from the World Health Organisation, WHO.

Ms. Liu, after a 10-day trip to Liberia, stressed that there should be an upper hand on the epidemic over the next six months.

Liu insisted that more experts were needed on the ground to achieve this.
