UNITED NATIONS: The UN Security Council has adopted a resolution declaring the Ebola outbreak a threat to world’s peace and security.

The resolution, which was adopted unanimously, came after the UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon warned that the number of Ebola infections was doubling every three weeks, in particular in Liberia.

It was learnt that the council heard a desperate appeal from Liberian medical aid worker Jackson Naimah for assistance to beat back the epidemic that has left about 2,600 dead and over 5,000 others severely ill in West Africa.

A call has been made to countries to donate helicopters, field hospitals and to air lift victims.
