WHO: 'No room for Ebola optimism until zero cases'

The World Health Organization (WHO) has given a positive assessment of efforts to meet its goals to tackle the West Africa Ebola outbreak.

The WHO set a target of isolating and treating 70% of patients and of safely burying 70% of victims in Liberia, Sierra Leone and Guinea by 1 December.

The WHO's Dr Bruce Aylward said only the treatment figure in Sierra Leone had fallen below the mark.

He warned there was no room for optimism until there were no Ebola cases.
