Health experts from 16 European countries beseeched their governments on Friday to massively scale up manpower and resources to fight West Africa's Ebola epidemic, which now threatens "the entire world".

European countries should urgently send trained medical staff, field laboratories, protective clothing, disinfectants and basic tools like generators, the 44 public health professionals and academics wrote in The Lancet medical journal.

"After months of inaction and neglect from the international community, the Ebola epidemic in West Africa has now spiraled utterly out of control," their open letter said.
