It also has a trained medical team, meeting the international requirements, and cubicles to isolate a laboratory, said Perez, who also confirmed the approval of the Central American Regional Office and the United States for the Control and Prevention of Diseases.

The outbreak ongoing in West Africa, which began in March 2014, is the largest and most complex to date, because there are more cases and fatalities this time than in all previous ones together, according to WHO estimates.
