The Ebola crisis has continued to accelerate as the WHO confirmed total deaths from the virus passed 4,000 out of almost 8,400 official cases. The outbreak has prompted greater calls for aid and caution.


The WHO also expanded the list of countries that needed to be on alert for the virus, a designation which comes with suggested actions.

Kenya has closed a border following a suspected case in Eastern Uganda. Nigeria is said to be ‘monitoring’ 1332 of its soldiers in Liberia after contacting a man who died of related symptoms.
The Washington Post had some more dire details on how fast the virus is spreading.



All these revelations come as the US military has an expanded presence on the ground in Liberia. Despite prior assertions that US troops would be in no danger, it has been confirmed that they may be in contact with virus-laden material.



Speaking of Sierra Leone, burial team workers went on a brief strike to highlight the problems in receiving their wages. Those are the last people that should be shorted during the most deadly Ebola outbreak in history.



A similar threat has been made in Liberia, one which has the danger to be more severe, particularly in light of the government banning journalists from Ebola treatment centers.
