Italy has donated $100,000 worth of equipment, mainly in the form of medical kits, to help the World Health Organisation combat Ebola haemorrhagic fever in Zaire. Over $2 million in aid had been promised to or received by the WHO by late May, the Swiss-based organisation says. Experts have meanwhile confirmed that the acute phase of the epidemic is over, and that transmission has been greatly reduced, if not completely halted.
