Geldof on Ebola: Africans are dying because they are poor

Bob Geldof has told the One Young World summit that people are dying in Africa because they are poor, not because there is no medical care or food.

Referring to Ebola as a 'filthy little virus', Geldof said people in West Africa are not dying from Ebola but that 'they are dying because they are poor'.
