UN: Ebola Cases Could Eventually Reach 20,000

The World Health Organization said Thursday the Ebola outbreak in West Africa eventually could exceed 20,000 cases, more than six times as many as are now known. A new plan released by the U.N. health agency to stop Ebola also assumes that the actual number of cases in many hard-hit areas may be two to four times higher than currently reported. If that's accurate, it suggests there could be up to 12,000 cases already. Currently, about half of the people infected with Ebola have died, so in the worst case scenario outlined by the WHO, the death toll could reach 10,000.
