For the first time in its history, the United Nations held an emergency meeting on a public health crisis. The Security Council voted to declare West Africa's Ebola outbreak a "threat to international peace and security." New numbers from the World Health Organization show more than 2,600 people have died from Ebloa and more than 5,000 have been infected. When it comes to fighting Ebola, U.S. Ambassador to the U.N. Samantha Power told Anderson that "words are meaningless, unless the words today turn into concrete commitments."
Anderson Cooper goes beyond the headlines to tell stories from many points of view, so you can make up your own mind about the news. Tune in weeknights at 8 and 10 ET on CNN.
