The World Health Organisation says the rate of Ebola cases in Liberia seems to be slowing, although experts are still examining the data to make sure it is reliable.

The country’s Red Cross has said teams picked up far fewer bodies in the capital last week than in previous weeks, and there are many beds open in the capital’s treatment centres.

Bruce Aylward, assistant director-general for the WHO, said experts are being cautious, but the rate of infection seems to be slowing. He cautioned that a small decline does not mean the epidemic is over.

He said experts are still checking to make sure there is not simply a problem with cases being reported.

More than 13,600 people have been affected in the outbreak.
