WHO: Ebola Epidemic Numbers Vastly Under-Reported Due To ‘Shadow Zones’ – ‘Frankly, No One Knows When This Outbreak Of Ebola Will End’

Ebola Epidemic Numbers Vastly Under-Reported Due To “Shadow Zones”, WHO Warns (ZeroHedge, Aug 23, 2014):

The stigma surrounding Ebola poses a serious obstacle to efforts to calibrate the outbreak in Liberia, Sierra Leone, Guinea and Nigeria. As Reuters reports, the scale of the world’s worst Ebola outbreak has been concealed by families hiding infected loved ones in their homes and the existence of “shadow zones” that medics cannot enter, according to the World Health Organization (WHO). “As Ebola has no cure, some believe infected loved ones will be more comfortable dying at home,” the WHO statement said, concluding rather ominously, “frankly, no one knows when this outbreak of Ebola will end.”
