Ebola epidemic slowing in Liberia—WHO

Ebola patient being attended to during the last outbreak

The World Health Organisation, WHO, said on Wednesday in Geneva that the spread of Ebola in Liberia appeared to be slowing compared to the “heavy traffic” in the past.

Bruce Aylward, who is in charge of WHO’s efforts to fight the disease in West Africa, said there were indications that the actual number of newly reported cases was beginning to decline in Liberia.

He said that hospital beds in the capital Monrovia had been freeing up, the number of laboratory-confirmed cases had remained stable, and the number of burials had fallen.

Aylward stressed that the analysis was preliminary, and that there was a chance that the development might be due to a lack of reporting of new cases or people not seeking treatment. (dpa/NAN)
