Newer Ebola plot shows number of reported cases per day is stable

24 Oct

I just downloaded the latest Ebola numbers (data from Healthmap using code by Ebolastats from their Github repository) and the number of reported new cases per day is still stable (see my earlier post on why plotting cumulative cases makes the situation look worse than it is)

It is possible that the epidemic is still growing exponentially, and the reported numbers do not reflect the real situation. Alternatively, the epidemic is really not growing anymore. Let’s hope it is the latter!
