WHO: Ebola ‘an international emergency’

The World Health Organization (WHO) has declared the spread of Ebola in West Africa an international health emergency.

WHO officials said the possible consequences were “particularly serious” because of the virulence of the virus.

The announcement came after experts convened a two-day emergency meeting in Switzerland.

I wonder… if they announced a vaccine tomorrow, would all the anti-vaccine people line up to get a shot?
