  1. World Bank Pledges $200 Million to Fight Ebola

    The UN lender has promised the funds in response to rising death tolls in Liberia, Sierra Leone and Guinea amid worldwide concern that the virus will spread. In NYC, a man who arrived from West Africa with Ebola-like symptoms has been placed in isolation, and a doctor has fallen ill in Nigeria — both cases highlighting mounting fears over the widening reach of the disease. Health authorities hope to use the new funds to stem the virus’s “catastrophic” potential.
