UN: Ebola Cases Could Eventually Reach 20,000

Updated: Thursday, August 28 2014, 02:42 PM CDT

The World Health Organization says the Ebola outbreak in West Africa could exceed 20,000 cases.

That's more than six times as many as right now. A new study by the U.N. health agency also assumes that in many hard-hit areas, the actual number of cases may be two to four times higher than is currently reported.

New figures show that 1,552 people have now died from the Ebola virus from among the 3,069 cases reported so far.
