    ECOWAS calls for regional response to stem Ebola

    The ECOWAS Mediation and Security Council has called for regional response in the appropriate management of the outbreak of Ebola haemorrhage fever in Guinea Republic.

    A statement on Friday by the ECOWAS spokesman, Mr Sunny Ugoh, said that the council made the call at its 31st meeting held in Yamoussoukro, Cote d’Ivoire on March 25.

    The statement said the fever, which had equally affected other neighbouring countries, caused enormous loss of human lives.

    It said the council considered the epidemic a serious threat to regional security.

    The council appealed to the international community to assist in the management of the epidemic in the region.

    In that regard, the council requested the President of the Commission, in consultation with the West African Health Organisation, to take relevant actions.

    It said this would be geared toward mobilising stakeholders and the needed resources to stem the epidemic.

    The statement said that the council expressed compassion and solidarity with the republics of Guinea and Liberia, as well as the bereaved families.
