The West African countries hit by the deadly Ebola virus can't recover from the ravages of the deadly virus without more help.

That's the verdict of the UN's Regional Inter-Agency Coordinator on Ebola, Peter Graaff.

The epidemic which led to around 11,000 deaths in Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone, beginning in December 2013, is mostly over, but just last week several new cases were reported.

Matthew Wells spoke to Mr Graaff, who is currently in Freetown, Sierra Leone, and asked him to describe the state of the battle against Ebola in the region.
