UN seeks to calm Ebola fears in Western Africa

ACCRA--The United Nations reassured west Africa on Wednesday that the world's deadliest-ever Ebola epidemic could be stopped in its tracks, telling the region's health ministers: “We can handle this.”

The highly-contagious tropical bug has infected hundreds of people in Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone, with the latest World Health Organization (WHO) figures showing confirmed or suspected cases had left 467 people dead.

The new toll represented a rise of 129 — or 38 percent — since the UN agency's last bulletin given just a week ago.
