G20: Pandemics 'a potential shock to global economy'

The President of the World Bank Group has told the BBC that the Ebola outbreak in West Africa is a "potential shock to the global economy".

"We think we have the tools to buffer that shock," he said.

However, he also said that he did not think that the meeting of global leaders at the G20 summit in Brisbane would result in funding.

Dr Jim Yong Kim was speaking to the BBC's Linda Yueh.
