The outbreak of the Ebola virus in West Africa has now claimed more than 2,000 lives. The World Health Organization (WHO) released an Ebola Response Roadmap Friday that puts the death toll at 2,097 out of 3,944 cases.
Liberia, the most affected country, reported 200 new cases a week for the past three weeks. One person tested positive for the virus in Senegal, which furthered the international community's fears of the spreading epidemic.
The West Africa outbreak does not include cases from the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC), which is experiencing an unconnected outbreak of the virus. Fully 53 cases and 31 deaths have been confirmed in the DRC as of Aug. 26.
There are only nine diagnostic laboratories in WHO's Emerging and Dangerous Pathogens Laboratory Network (EDPLN) equipped for Ebola or Marburg virus diagnostics, America's Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, Germany's Bernhard-Nocht-Institut für Tropenmedizin and South Africa's National Institute for Communicable Diseases.
