MONROVIA: The fight to combat Ebola will take "several months of hard work", the World Health Organization's Assistant Director-General, Dr Keiji Fukuda, warned in Monrovia on Friday.

"This is not something to turn around overnight, it is not going to be easy; we expect several months of hard work. We expect several months really struggling with this outbreak," he said at a press conference alongside the UN's Dr David Nabarro, who is coordinating the global response to the crisis.
