The latest figures tell a story of linear increase driven by Guinea. There is plateauing of the proportion of fatal cases (currently sitting under 60%). 

Testing continues and hopefully more suspect and probable cases will be discarded or confirmed in the coming days and weeks.

The Liberian component of the World Health Organisation report did not include death figures this time around. Thanks to +Cédric Moro (@Moro_Cedric) who referred me to the UNICEF update [2] which does indeed report the death toll remains stead at 11 as charted.
