    The Ebola epidemic still poses a threat to other countries but the risk of it spreading internationally appears to be falling.

    The Ebola epidemic still poses a threat to other countries but the risk of it spreading internationally appears to be falling, the World Health Organization (WHO) said on Friday.

    The experts, who make up the WHO Emergency Committee on Ebola, also made a strong recommendation that all countries "avoid any unnecessary interference with international trade and transport" beyond the temporary restrictions already in place, said Dr. Bruce Aylward, special representative for the Ebola response.
