The Ebola crisis in West Africa has developed at an unprecedented scale, experts have warned.

The current rate of infection stands at 1.7, meaning that for every 10 people that contract the virus, a further 17 will also be infected. The aim is to get the rate down to one, and eventually below one, in the fight to stop the spread of the deadly disease.

More than 40 British military personnel and aid experts are now working in Sierra Leone following a direct request for assistance from the World Health Organisation and the country’s government.

More than 160 NHS staff are also due to travel to Sierra Leone after answering a call for volunteers to help fight the disease earlier this month.

And Britain is to provide 700 extra beds to treat people affected by the highly contagious virus as part of a £100 million aid package.

Doctors and scientists are in a race against time to find a medical solution to the epidemic that is rapidly spiralling out of control.
