[Click to enlarge]WHO reports today that there are no new cases, but five more deaths. This brings the current spreading rate of the outbreak to 4.5 new cases per day based on the last five reports. It may be an indication that the outbreak is more or less under control for now. The fatality rate is currently at 92%, but WHO still hasn't reported any recovery so far.

The picture above is an update of the previous figure, showing the data up to 20 April.
