Ebola cases in Guinea totaled 3,670 and deaths totaled 2,437 as of June 10, 2015. The World Health Organization (WHO) reported that the figures in Africa may be underestimated. Nevertheless, the United Nations has anticipated that the outbreak is slowing. Liberia, in fact, was proclaimed Ebola-free by May 2015, with a total of 4,806 deaths during the outbreak. Containment centers have been especially important in preventing further transmission of the virus.

The Ebola virus causes extremely severe hemorrhagic fever and is considered a Risk Group 4 Pathogen by the World Health Organization (WHO).
