Ebola death toll rises to 2,800
22 Sep 2014 21:09
The World Health Organisation has said the deadliest Ebola epidemic ever has now killed 2,811 in west Africa.
-
It added that the outbreak has been pretty much contained in Senegal and Nigeria.
-
The UN health agency said a total of 5,864 people had been infected in five west African countries as of 18 September.
-
The disease has claimed 181 lives since the last death toll of 2,630 was issued on 14 September.
-
Guinea, where the outbreak began at the start of the year, and neighbouring Liberia and Sierra Leone by far account for most of the cases and continue to see ballooning numbers.
-
Liberia has been especially hard-hit, with 1,578 deaths from 3,022 cases.
-
Senegal has not reported any new cases of the deadly virus since it registered its first and only case on 29 August - a Guinean student who has since recovered.
-
Nigeria, where eight infected people died, has not reported any new cases since 8 September, the WHO pointed out.
