REUTERS/Goran Tomasevic/File PhotoThe World Health Organisation has disclosed that $98 million is needed to contain the ravaging Ebola Virus Disease in Democratic Republic of the Congo and Uganda as well as other susceptible nations in Africa and parts of the world.

They include improving preparedness for detecting and managing exported cases; continuous cross-border screening; risk-detecting population movements and sociological patterns; approvals for investigational medicines and vaccines and rapid implementation of optimal vaccine strategies sanctioned by WHO’s Strategic Advisory Group of Experts .

Although this tends to affect fewer than five patients, the study, led by Emma Glennon at Cambridge University, stressed the need for improved detection and rapid response on a consistent basis. It said the cluster of cases in Uganda was not unexpected, as the rapid response and initial containment were a testament to the importance of preparedness in neighbouring countries.It submitted that the exportation of cases into Uganda was a reminder that, as long as this outbreak continues in DRC, there was a risk of spread to neighbouring nations, though low.
