UN Concerned Over Ebola Backlash
The United Nations, which is working on an emergency footing to battle the outbreak of Ebola, is worried about the potential for further isolation of the hardest-hit nations in West Africa.
"It's a psychological fear," Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon told IPS. "And there has been a chain reaction."
He cautioned there should be no action which is not based on science or medical evidence.
Ban said the fight against Ebola is a "top priority" of the United Nations and admitted he was conscious of the fact the disease has had a "heavy impact on all spectrum of our lives."
