More than 1,500 people have died in the Ebola epidemic that has affected West Africa for the past six months.

The president of the international NGO Doctors Without Borders said during a meeting at the United Nations headquarters in New York that the world is losing the battle against the Ebola epidemic that is affecting West Africa.

Dr. Joanne Liu said that six months after the outbreak of the infection in Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone, the international community has failed to contain what it called a transnational threat.

The deadly virus has caused more than 1,500 deaths in what is considered the worst Ebola epidemic since its discovery in the center of the African continent nearly four decades ago, and experts have warned that many thousands of people could be infected in the coming weeks.

Liu added that due to inaction, there are fewer medical personnel available and so some treatment centers have become places where patients go to die.
