WHO: Ebola response shifts to ending epidemic

FILE - In this Friday, Jan. 23, 2015 file photo, Bruce Aylward, Assistant Director-General in charge of the Ebola operational response of the World Health Organization (WHO), informs the media about the WHO update on Ebola outbreak in West Africa, during a press conference at the European headquarters of the United Nations in Geneva, Switzerland. The World Health Organization says officials are now focused on ending the biggest-ever Ebola outbreak rather than just slowing the virus’ spread. In an update published Thursday, Jan. 29, 2015, the U.N. health agency said the three most affected countries _ Guinea, Sierra Leone and Liberia _ reported fewer than 100 cases in the past week, for the first time since June. Dr. Bruce Aylward, who is leading WHO’s Ebola response, warned that despite the progress made, the virus still isn’t under control. (AP Photo/Keystone, Salvatore Di Nolfi, File)
