US Ambassador To UN Calls For More Action On Ebola Crisis

Samantha Powers

The U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, returning from a visit to West Africa, which has been struggling with the world’s worst Ebola outbreak, says the world must do more to confront ‘the greatest public health crisis ever.’

Samantha Power says efforts by the United States and other countries to combat the spread of the deadly virus have begun to bear fruit but that ‘we each have to dig deeper.’ Without naming them, she said some nations had yet to shoulder their fair burden in the battle against Ebola. Power spoke in Brussels after visiting the three countries hardest-hit — Liberia, Sierra Leone and Guinea.
