UN Secretary General, Ban Ki-moon has said the Ebola outbreak could be ended “by the middle of next year” if the world speeds up its response. However, he warned that although the rate of new cases was slowing in parts of West Africa - Mali, where six people have died, was now of deep concern.

More than 5,400 people have died from the disease in Guinea, Sierra Leone and Liberia. Ban said increased infections in others and fears of further contagion in Mali indicate much work is still to be done. “If we continue to accelerate our response, we can contain and end the outbreak by the middle of next year,” he told reporters in Washington.
