UN: Ebola cases could eventually reach 20,000
GENEVA - The World Health Organization says the Ebola outbreak in West Africa eventually could exceed 20,000 cases, more than 6 times as many as now.
A new study by the U.N. health agency also assumes that in many hard-hit areas, the actual number of cases may be two to four times higher than is currently reported.
The agency on Thursday published new figures saying that 1,552 people have now died from the Ebola virus from among 3,069 cases reported so far.
