In West Africa, every hour there are five new cases of Ebola, according to the NGO Save the Children, which says the virus is spreading at a “terrifying” pace.
The situation continues to deteriorate, the World Health Organization (WHO) warns, which insists on the problems they are having for the collection of data, especially in Liberia. According to the latest figures, since the virus has appeared in December of last year, there have been 8,973 confirmed infections and 4,484 deaths. In Guinea, where the outbreak arose, there are already 843 deaths. In Sierra Leone, 1,183 fatalities. In Liberia, the country which has been most affected by the disease, the death toll reached 2,458.
