Monrovia – Jean-Pierre Veyrenche, in charge of building Ebola treatment centres in Monrovia for the World Health Organization, says fear is keeping international aid experts from joining the battle against the west African outbreak.

“No one knows what to do” to handle the wildfire spread of Ebola in Liberia’s densely populated capital, Veyrenche told AFP in an interview, stressing that humanitarian workers were all “learning” as they go along.

But he said that with “simple measures”, medical staff could protect themselves and “get work done” – and that Liberia, like its Ebola-struck neighbours, remained in dire need of trained international workers.

Of the four west African nations affected by the Ebola outbreak, Liberia has been hit the hardest, with 3 458 people infected –

more than half of the total number of cases. Of those, 1 830 have died, according to a WHO count released on Saturday.
