Ebola Could Strike 20,000, World Health Agency Says

AUG. 28, 2014

GENEVA — The World Health Organization said on Thursday that the Ebola epidemic was still accelerating and could afflict more than 20,000 people — almost seven times the current number of reported cases — before it could be brought under control.

The dire forecast was made as the health organization reported that the number of known cases and fatalities had risen once again. The organization also acknowledged that in areas of intense transmission “the actual number of cases may be two to four times higher than that currently reported.”

The outbreak “continues to accelerate,” the organization said.

Two dozen suspected Ebola cases have emerged hundreds of miles from West Africa in what health officials are calling a second “unrelated” outbreak in the Democratic Republic of Congo.

Republic of Congo President: Ebola outbreak 'bigger than all of us'

Donna Leinwand Leger, USA TODAY

WASHINGTON – Even before Republic of Congo President Denis Sassou Nguesso boarded the plane that would take him to the United States for next week's U.S.-Africa Leaders Summit, he had Ebola on his mind.

He called Alpha Conde, president of Guinea, one of three West African countries wrestling with an intense outbreak of the deadly Ebola virus. He wanted the latest update on the region's plan with the World Health Organization to halt the spread of the disease, which has also infected people in Liberia and Sierra Leone.

2 People Die of Ebola in Democratic Republic of Congo

Aug. 24, 2014

But the deaths are not related to the current outbreak in West Africa, health officials in Congo say

Two people have died of Ebola in the Democratic Republic of Congo, though the cases may be unrelated to the outbreak in West Africa that has killed more than 1,400 people.

Of eight samples taken in the Boende region of Congo’s northwest Equateur province, two came back positive, Health Minister Felix Kabange Numbi said Sunday, the Associated Press reports. Eleven people are sick and in isolation, and 80 contacts are being traced.

“This epidemic has nothing to do with the one in West Africa,” Kabange said.
