Geneva (AFP) – The head of the World Health Organization conceded on Wednesday that the UN body was slow to respond to the outbreak of Ebola that has now killed more than 6,300 people in west Africa.

“It is fair to say the whole world, including WHO, failed to see what was unfolding, what was going to happen in front of our eyes,” WHO director general Margaret Chan told the BBC in an interview.

“An old disease like Ebola, when we put it in a new context, we were slow. All of us were slow to see the impact of social, cultural and economic situations on the ground.”

She added: “With the benefit of hindsight, I can tell you — we could have mounted a much, much more robust response.”
