The United Nations Ebola Czar Anthony Banbury disclosed that he can't keep track of official statistics on those suffering from Ebola in Western Africa, because too many of them are fleeing the region and moving to the United States of America.
The Houston Chronicle reports that, "Authorities are having trouble figuring out how many more people are getting Ebola in Liberia and Sierra Leone and where the hot spots are in those countries, harming efforts to get control of the raging, deadly outbreak, the 's top Ebola official in West Africa said Tuesday."
Czar Banbury is quoted as saying that, "And unfortunately, we don't have good data from a lot of areas. We don't know exactly what is happening."
According to the Houston Chronicle, "Health experts say the key to stopping Ebola is breaking the chain of transmission by tracing and isolating those who have had contact with Ebola patients or victims. Health care workers can't do that if they don't know where new cases are emerging."
President Barry Obama appears likely to offer U.S. citizenship to all Ebola sufferers from Western Africa after the mid-term elections.
