Ebola's escalating spread constitutes the worst global health emergency in years, world leaders warned, vowing to dramatically step up the response to the virus that has already killed nearly 4,500 people.As of Sunday, 4,493 people had died out of a total of 8,997 cases in the outbreak now affecting seven countries, according to latest figures from the World Health Organization.Unites States President Barack Obama Wednesday called on the world to do more, while insisting his own country would be "much more aggressive" in its response, after a second Texas hospital worker tested positive for the disease.The hemorrhagic virus has ravaged West African countries Liberia, Guinea and Sierra Leone since the start of the year, and outside the region cases have begun surfacing in the U.S. and Spain.As the world scrambles to rein in the raging virus, U.N. rights chief Zeid Raad al-Hussein cautioned Thursday that respect for the rights of survivors and affected communities risked being sacrificed.The Red Cross also urged the international community to focus less on dramatic actions like shutting down airports and entire countries and more on engaging with populations to alter behaviors allowing the outbreak to swell.Authorities want to interview 132 people who flew on a plane with an Ebola-infected nurse.
