A report published in The Lancet Infectious Diseases journal states: “If we get this epidemic going in West and East Africa, it will be catastrophic,” said Dr. Robert Watson, the WHO’s Director of International Public Health Services.
“It’s the endgame, but it’s going to take time to get to that point,” Watson told ABC News’ Diane Sawyer.
Dr. Peter Kooi, the lead author of the study, said the outbreak in Liberia “should be a wake-up call to the WHO and to the entire international community that this virus can spread easily in Africa.”

He said: “There’s no question that if we see outbreaks of Zio in Australia and New Zealand and other countries in the West, it’s a wake up call that there is this virus that can spread.”
ABC News Dr Michael Gomer, WHO Chief Medical Officer Dr Peter Koonce, WHO Director of Public Health Dr. Michael Gorman discuss the Zia outbreak in Australia “There’s a lot of fear and panic around Zia, and it’s not going to be the case,” Dr. Gorman told ABC’s Diane Sawyer, according to a headline on the ABC News website.
