Europe will be "vulnerable" if it does not regard viruses as a "national security issue" like the United States, the microbiologist who discovered Ebola said in an interview published on Friday.

"It's time the United Kingdom and Europe had a well-trained corps of people who are globally experienced and deployable," Peter Piot told the British newspaper The Independent.

"We don't have that and that makes us vulnerable," added the Belgian scientist, who is director of the School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine in London.
