A medical microbiologist at The University of Western Australia says the developed world must not fear sending people to help efforts to control Ebola in Africa.
Professor Tim Inglis, from UWA's School of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine, has written an article published today in the international journal Nature about Australia's response to the Ebola outbreak.
He said Australia needed to mobilise laboratory support to the West Africa Ebola epidemic so that disease control specialists working at the edge of the epidemic could more effectively target their limited resources.
