WHO Weighs Debating Global Health Emergency As Ebola Spreads In Africa June 13, 20195:37 AM ET

 The World Health Organization is considering whether to declare the current Ebola outbreak in central Africa a global health crisis after new cases spread to Uganda from neighboring Democratic Republic of the Congo, where the disease has already killed nearly 1,400 people.The Associated Press, quoting Congo's health ministry, says a dozen of the boy's family members also showed Ebola symptoms and had been placed in isolation. However, six of them managed to leave while awaiting transfer to a treatment facility."I am worried because having Ebola in the country is not something you take lightly, because Ebola means death," she told the BBC.A WHO expert committee on the outbreak was scheduled to meet for a third time on Friday in Geneva, where it will discuss whether to declare a global health emergency.Ebola is spread through direct contact with bodily fluids, such as blood, saliva and vomit. Initial symptoms include fever, headache, muscle pain and chills. Later symptoms can include internal bleeding, vomiting and coughing up blood. On average, half of the people who contract Ebola die as a result of the disease.
