>Ebola Death Toll Reaches 729 In West Africa – WHO

The World Health Organization said on Thursday that the deaths of 57 more people from Ebola between Thursday and Sunday last week in west Africa have pushed the overall fatality toll from the epidemic to 729
It said 122 new cases were detected over those four days, taking the total number of confirmed and likely infected cases from the outbreak so far to 1,323.

WHO said the trend in Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone “remains precarious with ongoing… transmission of infection”. Guinea is suffering the worst from the disease, which causes often fatal bleeding and has no vaccine. The country’s authorities reported 20 more deaths apparently from Ebola in the last four days of last week, taking its national fatility figure to 339.

WHO said the medical sample taken from the patient who died in Nigeria shortly after arriving by air had still not been analysed by its regional lab because courier companies were refusing to transport it.
