The official, who did not want to be named, said that although there were signs that the various control measures deployed by the authorities were working, there would be no quick resolution. … The U.K. has been one of the fourth biggest donors to the current outbreak alongside the United States government, the European Union, and the World Bank…” (Gulland, 3/5).
