The current Ebola outbreak in West Africa could infect more than 20,000 people, the World Health Organisation (WHO) said on Thursday in a bleak assessment of the deadly disease.

The United Nations health agency issued a strategic plan to combat the oubreak in four West African nations where it said the actual number of cases could already be two to four times higher than the reported 3,069. The death toll stands at 1,552.

"This roadmap assumes that in many areas of intense transmission the actual number of cases may be 2-4 fold higher than that currently reported. It acknowledges that the aggregate case load of Ebola Virus Disease could exceed 20,000 over the course of this emergency," the WHO said.

The deadly outbreak that began in Guinea in March and has spread to neighbouring Liberia and Sierra Leone as well as to Nigeria requires a massive and coordinated international response, the WHO said.

Someone said that if you reverse the dialogue, it’s basically the same. Of course, then I had to try that. It’s. So. True.

The whole time, Eleven thought of her as a girlfriend, or at the beginning a good friend. But he mentioned a dead version of herself, and I bet when she said “I never thought you were,” she meant it. She probably thought the Doctor was keeping her because he wanted to be reminded of the mysterious girl who he mentioned, but even though that hurt, she loved him enough to stay with him. Then, Twelve probably thought all Clara wanted was Eleven when she was starting to see him as a new person, yet the same one at the same time. He was prepared to let her travel with him for as long as she wanted, no matter if all she wanted was Eleven; because even still, he’s still a little bit of Eleven, and he couldn’t possibly leave his impossible girl.
