WHO: Ebola Response Roadmap Situation Report [October 15, 2014]   [open pdf - 0B]

Alternate Title: World Health Organization: Ebola Response Situation Report [October 15, 2014]

From the Outline: "This is the eighth in a series of regular situation reports on the Ebola Response Roadmap. The report contains a review of the epidemiological situation based on official information reported by ministries of health, and an assessment of the response measured against the core Roadmap indicators where available. The data contained in this report are the best available. Because of widespread under-reporting of confirmed cases in Liberia, suspected cases are now also shown in country histograms. Substantial efforts are ongoing to improve the availability and accuracy of information about both the epidemiological situation and the implementation of response measures. Following the roadmap structure, country reports fall into three categories: (1) those with widespread and intense transmission (Guinea, Liberia, and Sierra Leone); (2) those with an initial case or cases, or with localized transmission (Nigeria, Senegal, Spain, and the United States of America); and (3), those countries that neighbour areas of active transmission (Benin, Burkina Faso, Côte d'Ivoire, Guinea-Bissau, Mali, Senegal). An overview of the situation in the Democratic Republic of the Congo, where there is a separate, unrelated outbreak of EVD [Ebola Virus Disease], is also provided."
