The World Health Organization said Thursday it aimed to reverse the spread of Ebola within three months, but warned that the caseload in West Africa's epidemic could eventually top 20,000.
In a new anti-Ebola plan, the UN health agency said it aimed to reverse the trend within three months, with the final aim of stopping "all residual transmission within 6-9 months".
It said the current case-count -- 3,062, with 1,552 deaths -- was likely two to four times lower than the actual number, and that the number of infections "could exceed 20,000 over the course of this emergency".
