Ebola: Latest WHO report suggests deterioration in affected areas in NW Africa

For any of my readers interested in the latest regarding the Ebloa situation in Northwest Africa, here is an excellent resource for you or your students.  It is from the World Health Organization (WHO) and is dated October 15, so it is very recent.

All you need to do is read the first page of the report (and only the 3rd paragraph) to get the idea that at this point the virus is not close to being contained in either Liberia, Sierra Leon or Guinea Bissau.

The international community is going to be playing "Whack-a-Mole" with this for the foreseeable future. Not a good situation.

Also, if you are a data hound, here is a link to a source that is doing yeomans work by combing through unorganized data provided by the respective host countries and putting it on Github.
