EBOLA EMERGENCY RESPONSE TEAMS ACTIVATED BY EUROPEAN COMMISSION


Asked by EURACTIV.com about the Commission’s response to the new reported outbreak, spokesperson Carlos Martin Ruiz De Gordejuela said the EU executive was “fully committed to provide all the support necessary”.

He said that Humanitarian Aid Commissioner Christos Stylianides, who is the EU Ebola coordinator, together with colleague Vytenis Andriukaitis, responsible for health, were closely following the developments, and that the Commission’s Emergency Response Coordination Centre (ERCC) was taking preparatory measures.

The spokesperson said there has been a meeting organised by ERCC yesterday, for a potential EU intervention, to evaluate if the European Medical Corps capacities will be needed.
