Ebola: Are cases levelling off?

Ebola: Are cases levelling off? We may be entering a new phase of the Ebola epidemic in West Africa.

There is growing - but certainly guarded - talk within the World Health Organization that the overall number of new cases is levelling off.

Officials have told me they now expect the figure to stick at around 1,000 fresh cases each week.

It is in sharp contrast to the early phase of the outbreak when the number was doubling every three to four weeks. BBC News
