 Ebola Epidemic may Last for Several Months

Possibly the worst Ebola outbreak in history is continuing its deadly rampage through South Africa and may last for several months, the UN health agency said.

Keiji Fukuda, the UN agency's assistant director-general of health security, said at the close of a regional summit of health ministers on the crisis it was "impossible to give a clear answer" on how far the epidemic could spread or when it might begin to retreat.

"I certainly expect that we are going to be dealing with this outbreak minimum for a few months to several months," he told journalists.
