The world still isn't equipped to handle Ebola, Doctors Without Borders says

Health authorities aren't much better equipped to handle an Ebola flare-up than they were a year ago, international medical charity Doctors Without Borders claimed Saturday, Reuters reports.

"The reality today is if Ebola were to hit on scale it did in August and September, we would hardly do much better than we did the last time around," organization president Joanne Liu said.

She expressed disappointment over recent vague resolutions to combat the epidemic made by the World Health Assembly and the G7.
