Ebola Virus Disease Electron Micrograph

Ebola Timeline of Cases and Deaths

Timeline of cases and deaths

Data comes from reports by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention[262] and the WHO.[263] All numbers are correlated with United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA) if available.[264] The table includes suspected cases that have not yet been confirmed. The reports are sourced from official information from the affected countries’ health ministries. The WHO has stated the reported numbers “vastly underestimate the magnitude of the outbreak”, estimating there may be 2.5 times as many cases as officially reported.[10][11] Liberia was singled out in the October 8th report from WHO, noting “There continue to be profound problems affecting data acquisition in Liberia… it is likely that the figures will be revised upwards in due course.”[9]

The case numbers reported may include probable or suspected cases. Numbers are revised downward if a case is later found to be negative. (Numbers may differ from reports as per respective Government reports. See notes at the bottom for stated source file.)
