Health workers battling the outbreak of Ebola in Africa has warned the current response from Western countries is inadequate, and risks aggravating the crisis.
Mego Terziam, head of the French arm of Medecins Sans Frontieres (MSF), accused the Western world of not caring because they were not directly affected.
He said the epidemic was getting worse each day and neither they, the World Health Organisation nor the governments of affected countries had the means to contain it.
He said Western governments' approach of encouraging local authorities to isolate the problem, close borders and stop air traffic, they were causing more harm than good.
