UN Ambassador Samantha Power showed off the new “Ebola handshake” Wednesday while greeting the World Health Organization’s Dr. Peter Graaff in Liberia.

The two bumped elbows as health authorities in the three West African countries hardest hit by the virus urged people to no longer shake hands as a way to help stop the lethal virus.

Ebola is rampant in West Africa and is spread through direct contact, the CDC warns.

Power was in the region to urge countries to meet their commitments to help stop the spread of the disease.

    She is so caring and concerned and feels the little people’s pain.
    Her empathy is exceptional and exemplary.
