More than 10,000 people have now died from the Ebola virus, almost all of them in west Africa, the World Health Organization said Thursday.
The three hardest-hit countries of Sierra Leone, Guinea and Liberia have recorded 24,350 cases and 10,004 deaths since the epidemic began more than a year ago, the UN body said.
There have also been six deaths in Mali, one in the United States and eight in Nigeria, all of which have since been declared Ebola-free.
