The World Health Organisation will hold an emergency meeting on Wednesday to decide whether Democratic Republic of Congo’s Ebola outbreak constitutes public health emergency of international concern.
The organisation noted in a statement in Geneva that the meeting, which would involve committee of independent experts, may make recommendations on how best to manage the outbreak.
The outbreak was declared on August 1stand worsened in recent weeks, with risk of the virus spreading from northeastern Congo into Uganda and Rwanda.
