When the world health organisation called for urgent emergency measures to fight the Ebola outbreak in South West Africa, there was no shortage of ideas.
A team of doctors, nurses and midwives had to be deployed and there was a lack of staff to carry out a huge number of operations.
The situation was dire.
Many of the nurses and doctors were already sick, and many more were being exposed.
“This is a health emergency and we are the only ones left,” one nurse said.
It is not uncommon for people to leave their homes in search of safety, but the situation was different.
The world has seen a string of Ebola outbreaks in recent years, including the recent one in Guinea, and the region is currently facing an unprecedented number of cases.
The region is home to some of the world’s largest healthcare facilities, including health centres, hospitals and clinics.
In the capital, Dakar, the Ebola centre is run by the WHO, but there are also about 50 private health centres in the capital.
The first two weeks of March have seen an influx of people, but many are being diverted to more isolated locations, including one in a remote town in the east of the country.
The lack of basic resources is one of the main reasons for the Ebola crisis.
In this country, many people rely on the food they can get from their own land, so the need to ration food is also pressing.
In a bid to ensure people have access to basic health care, the WHO has launched a number of emergency measures.
The government has pledged $300m to support health centres and has launched an awareness campaign on social media.
There are also plans to build more health centres.
The president, Alpha Conde, is already making noises about the need for urgent measures.
“The crisis is a humanitarian emergency,” he told a press conference.
“We must do everything we can to bring the situation under control.”
But, as the outbreak has grown, the situation has deteriorated.
“People are not getting adequate food,” a health worker in the Dakar region told the Reuters news agency.
“It’s difficult for us to get proper medical supplies and medicines.”
Another health worker said: “There are more people [who are] dying every day.”
There are already signs that the Ebola epidemic is worsening.
The number of new cases has increased from about 4,500 to more than 13,000, according to the World Bank.
The health worker added: “A lot of people have died.
Dr James White, a WHO adviser on Ebola, said that the situation is “very dire”. “
What we are seeing is the people coming from rural areas, who are desperate, are taking advantage of the situation.”
Dr James White, a WHO adviser on Ebola, said that the situation is “very dire”.
“We have seen the number of people coming into our country and coming back with the virus and that is very concerning,” he said.
“But we also have to recognise that we are not the only country that has experienced this crisis.”
Dr White said that countries that are suffering from a similar epidemic, like the United States, were more likely to see outbreaks of Ebola.
“One of the biggest concerns is the emergence of the virus in a country like the US,” he added.
“Our concern is that it spreads faster and spreads more quickly than in other countries.”
WHO is calling on governments around the world to urgently implement a range of measures, including funding and training for health workers, better monitoring of people entering and leaving countries and increased surveillance of people in close contact with health workers.
This includes people working in public health centres like hospitals, clinics, prisons, schools and prisons.
Dr White also called on all countries to build a system that could contain and quarantine the virus.
“There is an enormous amount of work that has to be done on the ground to protect health workers and the wider population,” he warned.
WHO will hold a meeting on Friday to discuss the outbreak and provide updates on its progress.
WHO is also inviting people to share their stories and experiences on Twitter, with the hashtag #EbolaChallenge.
The WHO is running a new hashtag for the hashtag, #EtikolifeChallenge, to raise awareness of the Ebola Crisis.
This means people will be able to post photos of themselves or their loved ones who have died or been exposed to Ebola.
The hashtags #EbbolaChallenging, #VirusChallenge and #EbolifeChallenges will be shared to share stories and photos.
This hashtag was launched on Sunday and has been retweeted more than 100,000 times.
More: WHO is encouraging people to help spread the word about the outbreak, tweeting #Ekolife and #PraiseEbolas, and encouraging people not to forget their loved one.
The hashtag #IStandWithMyEboli has
