The US has announced plans to send at least 50 public health experts to West Africa to help fight the worst-ever outbreak of Ebola.
A senior US health official said the outbreak was out of control but insisted it could be stopped.
Ebola has claimed 728 lives in Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone this year. The current mortality rate is about 55%.
Meanwhile, an American doctor infected with the virus is improving in hospital after returning to the US from Liberia.
Dr Kent Brantly arrived at a military base in Georgia on Saturday before being driven to Emory University Hospital.
