'Drastic action' needed on Ebola

'Drastic action' is needed to contain the spread of deadly ebola in West Africa, according to the World Health Organization (WHO).


Nearly 400 people have died in the outbreak which started in Guinea and has spread to neighbouring Sierra Leone and Liberia.


It is the largest outbreak in terms of cases, deaths and geographical spread.


The WHO said it was 'gravely concerned' and there was potential for 'further international spread'.
