Who refuses to declare ebola outbreak ‘International emergency’ as at-risk migrants pour into Texas

Migrants from Congo busing into San Antonio unvetted.

The World Health Organization (WHO) has decided not to declare an international health emergency over the Ebola epidemic in the Democratic Republic of Congo that has now spread to Uganda, the organization announced Friday.

After an independent panel of medical experts on WHO’s Emergency Committee met Friday to discuss the possibility of declaring the worsening Ebola epidemic in Africa an “international emergency,” the committee concluded that despite the “extraordinary event” of Ebola spreading into Uganda, the level of response would remain unchanged.

“It was the view of the Committee that the outbreak is a health emergency in DRC and the region but does not meet all the three criteria for a PHEIC under the IHR,” WHO declared in a statement.
