Ebola West Africa numbers in context...[AMENDED]

A quick glance at how the suspect, probable and laboratory confirmed (susp/prob/conf) cases of Ebola virus disease (EVD) stack up in the 3 countries with local spread of Zaire ebolavirus.

Please note that I have separated Guinea-2014, Sierra Leone-2014 and Liberia 2014 only to highlight that each country in the single "West Africa" outbreak (involving a single viral variant as far as we know) has greater case numbers than those found in many of the earlier outbreaks.

I have not yet listed the case imported to Nigeria here.
