The deadly Ebola outbreak which killed more than 11,000 people in West Africa is not yet over, according to the UN Secretary-General's Special Envoy for Ebola.

The number of cases has dropped dramatically but the three most affected countries, Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone are now feeling the economic fall-out.

Dr David Nabarro recently attended a ceremony to mark a contribution of US$ 1 million by Russia to a UN Development Programme multi-partner trust fund to fight Ebola.

Nargiz Shekinskaya caught up with Dr Nabarro to get an update on the outbreak and the efforts to completely stop it.
