An official with the World Health Organization said Friday, beds in Ebola treatment centers are filling up faster than they can be provided, evidence that an outbreak in West Africa is far more severe than the numbers show. The outbreak sweeping Guinea, Liberia, Sierra Leone and Nigeria is already the largest and deadliest ever recorded, But the U.N. health agency said Thursday that official counts of the dead and infected may still “vastly underestimate the magnitude of the outbreak.” A spokesman for WHO, said from Geneva, the flood of patients into every newly opened treatment center is evidence that the official tolls aren’t keeping up.
