Ebola deaths set to surge, expert warns

Friday October 24th, 2014

One county in Liberia could suffer 90,000 deaths from Ebola in the next six weeks unless international support is massively stepped up, researchers warn today.

As many as 170,000 people in Montserrado County could contract the viral infection during that time, according to the study in The Lancet Infectious Diseases.

The experts say the county needs another 4,800 hospital beds, protective kits for home care and a five times increase in the speed with which contacts of patients are traced.

The warning about the growing scale of the disaster followed a meeting of the World Health Organisation's emergency committee yesterday. This heard that the official number of deaths recorded from the outbreak is still below 5,000.
