Two chief public-health agencies World Health Organization and the U.S. health agency issued terrible warnings about the Ebola epidemic in West Africa, calculating that the number of patients could rise drastically and this will occur in epidemically on a large scale soon.
This warning is very serious and the U.S. Centers said that from 550,000 people to as many as 1.4 million citizens when under reporting of cases is taken into report could be contaminated through Ebola by mid-January in Liberia and Sierra Leone, in a most horrible-case situation created by a computer modeling tool the agency built. The agencies estimated that maybe 21,000 cases would occur by Sept. 30.
The CDC said in its report that registered cases in Liberia are increasing up every three weeks, and the infected cases in Sierra Leone are increasing every 30-40 days, these depressing estimates were made at the end of August, before huge assurances of aid started ongoing in and before the U.S.
According to the report published in New England Journal of Medicine that the specialists from the W.H.O also forecast that the number of cases in West Africa would go up drastically, saying more than 20,000 people would have been contaminated by early November.
Dr. Peter Horby said on this hazard situation that for the next one or two weeks we’ll be doing site reviews and we’ll be working with the WHO on discovering which medicines are more effective against Ebola, and then there’ll be a number of plans in setting up the systems and now we did contract to run the trials after got right approval through the countries.
