 More Than One Million Facing Hunger in Ebola-Hit Countries: UN

Border closures, quarantines and crop losses in West African nations battling the Ebola virus could lead to as many as one million people going hungry, reveal UN food agencies.

"The number of people facing food insecurity due to the Ebola epidemic in Guinea, Liberia, and Sierra Leone could top one million by March 2015 unless access to food is drastically improved and measures are put in place to safeguard crop and livestock production," warned the UN Food and Agriculture Organization and the World Food Programme (WFP).
