Pope Francis: No people is criminal and no religion is terrorist

February 17, 2017. Pope Francis has sent an important message to the Meetings of Popular Movements that is taking place in Modesto (California). The pope denounces the "moral blindness of this indifference”: "under the guise of what is politically correct or ideologically fashionable, one looks at those who suffer without touching them. But they are televised live; they are talked about in euphemisms and with apparent tolerance, but nothing is done systematically to heal the social wounds or to confront the structures that leave so many brothers and sisters by the wayside”.

WHO: Number of People Infected By Ebola Virus Could be Much Greater

2014-08-23

Estimates on the number of people infected by the Ebola virus could be much greater than anticipated. According to the World Health Organization, staff members in clinics in West Africa have reported an increase of patients arriving as new health centers are opened. 

GREGORY HARTL
Spokesperson, World Health Organization
"We have seen with the opening of new treatment centers, many more Ebola patients come forward, and so this has given rise to the belief that there are probably a lot of patients out there that we haven't traced or contacted yet.”

The death toll as of last week stood at over 1,200 in West Africa. However, with the increase in patients infected with the virus, the World Health Organization believes that the number of cases and deaths are greatly underestimated.  

For now, they are concentrating their efforts to trace possible new infections by focusing on those who have already died from the disease. 

GREGORY HARTL
Spokesperson, World Health Organization
"The people who have died also have the most severe infection, so their contacts are more likely than other contacts to themselves to be infected.”

The World Health Organization is rallying support from individual countries, health agencies and the United Nations in order to fight the spread of the disease.
