Thanks Ms. Williams. So clearly a good communication strategy is needed.
We have received hundreds of questions in the last 30 minutes, but unfortunately we can't post them all.
Dr. Kasolo. Could you tell us how the WHO decides when an outbreak is considered to be a PHEIC, and why it took so long for the WHO to come to this decision despite alarms from international aid agencies on the ground?
Question for Johan von Schreeb. Do you think any good can come out of this Ebola outbreak in terms of strengthening of health care systems in the country?
Question for Jorge Castilla. Has the international community got enough resources financially to contain this outbreak?
Q from Gaurav Garg @gargorama:
What did Sierra Leone learn from the cholera response in 2011-12? Should have, but doesnt look like it
Dr. Kasolo. What are the obstacles to getting people on the ground? Jorge Castilla says that the WHO needs to coordinate volunteer doctors and nurses from the EU. Is that something the WHO are considering?
Question for Jorge Castilla. @DocStukie asks, why is there a disconnect between 'pledged' funds and operations on the ground (No protective gear, burials bags)?
Dr. Kasalo, @mauiolavarria asks why the WHO under-reported the EVD cases?
Hi Dr. von Schreeb. Can any good come of this outbreak in terms of strengthening of health systems in West Africa as a result on the donor investment?
I would also follow up on Misha's point that with a question about funding. Is there really a lot of new funding to tackle this crisis? Reuters had an exclusive earlier this month on the U.S. government not renewing funding for a major research project into Lassa fever - a decision, which affects a facility in Sierra Leone that is at the forefront of the battle against Ebola
Question for Johan von Schreeb and Jorge Castilla. Should MSF have trained other international medical aid agencies in Ebola much earlier in the outbreak, when things started to get out of hand?
Please note, we're going to wind this debate up at 4pm... in about 15 minutes.
WHO have received a lot of criticism over the past few weeks for being too slow to respond to the outbreak. Is this criticism justified?
Last question. SARS cost the Chinese tourism industry some $8.5bn according to Marcus Keogh-Brown from LSHTM. Can you foresee any kind of economic impact on West Africa from Ebola? What would that be?
Thanks to all our panelists.
And thanks to everyone for the questions.
Sorry we couldn't put all of them up, but we hope that the panel has managed to answer some of your questions.
