SUMMARY
A total of 15 351 confirmed, probable, and suspected cases of Ebola virus disease (EVD) have been reported in six affected countries (Guinea, Liberia, Mali, Sierra Leone, Spain, and the United States of America) and two previously affected countries (Nigeria, Senegal) up to the end of 18 November 2014. There have been 5459 reported deaths.

Following the WHO Ebola Response Roadmap structure[1], country reports fall into two categories: 1) those with widespread and intense transmission (Guinea, Liberia, and Sierra Leone); and 2) those with or that have had an initial case or cases, or with localized transmission (Mali, Nigeria, Senegal, Spain, and the United States of America). A separate, unrelated outbreak of EVD in the Democratic Republic of the Congo has now been declared over.
