New York - The United Nations must investigation the cause for the outbreak of Ebola in West Africa, which has killed thousands of people, mainly in the three most affected countries in the region. A comprehensive independent investigation into the sudden outbreak of the disease will provide some answers on whether the outbreak was of natural cause or, the outcome of some clandestine biological research program. Regardless of what caused it, the findings will also enhance recurrence prevention measures not just in West Africa but throughout the continent.
