Funeral workers trained in the burial of Ebola victims lower a body into a grave at the Fing Tom cemetery in Freetown, Sierra Leone on October 10, 2014The number of people with Ebola is set to hit 10,000 in West Africa, the World Health Organization said, as the scramble to find a cure gathered pace. The UN's public health body said 9,936 people in Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone -- the three countries at the epicentre of the world's worst-ever Ebola epidemic -- have contracted the disease. With experts warning the rate of infections could reach 10,000 a week by early December, researchers around the world are scrambling to beat the tropical fever, for which there is currently no licensed treatment or vaccine. The figures were released as the WHO in Geneva on Wednesday held its third round of emergency talks on Ebola, discussing efforts to combat the tropical fever.
