WHO: Number affected by Ebola 'vastly' underestimated

Ebola crisisThere is evidence that the reported numbers of dead and sickened by Ebola in West Africa may "vastly underestimate the magnitude of the outbreak," the World Health Organization (WHO) said Thursday.

With estimates of more than 1,060 deaths and 1,975 infected, the Ebola outbreak in West Africa is already the deadliest ever.

It will take about six months for the epidemic to be controlled, Joanne Liu, head of Doctors Without Borders (MSF), said Friday. She compared the Ebola outbreak to "wartime" and said that abating it would require greater leadership from the WHO.

"If we don't stabilize Liberia, we will never stabilize the region," Liu said after a 10-day trip to West Africa. The deadly Ebola virus has hit Liberia particularly hard.

"Over the next six months we should get the upper hand on the epidemic, this is my gut feeling," she said, adding more experts were needed on the ground.
