The World Health Organisation said yesterday, that the death toll from the Ebola outbreak in West Africa has risen to 8,153 out of 20,656 cases recorded.

Almost all the deaths and cases have been recorded in the three West African countries worst hit by the outbreak - Sierra Leone, Liberia and Guinea.

Elsewhere, 6 people have died in Mali, 1 in the United States and 8 in Nigeria, which was declared Ebola-free in October.

Spain and Senegal, which have both been declared free of Ebola, had 1 case each but no deaths.

Last week, Britain reported its first confirmed case of Ebola in a nurse recently returned from Sierra Leone.
