WHO: Ebola Set to Explode Without Drastic Action

WHO states that the Ebola epidemic is set to explode unless the response is radically intensified

The World Health Organisation (WHO) states that, the Ebola epidemic is set to explode unless the response is radically intensified, warning that hundreds of thousands could be infected by the end of 2014.

In a report, the United Nations agency declares that new cases would surge from hundreds each week to thousands without ‘drastic improvements in control measures’, with the number of infections set to more than triple to 20 000 by November 2014.

The research paper warns that the outbreak could drag out for years and become entrenched in West Africa, which has already seen almost 3 000 deaths.
