WHO expert: 'Thousands' of Ebola deaths likely unreported

from AFP via Yahoo News

The raging Ebola outbreak has likely killed far more people than the 4,818 deaths reported by the World Health Organization, an expert at the U.N. health agency said, warning that thousands of fatalities were likely not accounted for. "There are lots of missing deaths in this epidemic," Christopher Dye, WHO's strategy chief, told AFP, estimating that around 5,000 fatalities could be missing from the count. This assessment, he said, was based on the knowledge that the fatality rate in the epidemic centered in Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone stands at about 70 percent. more
