According to reports, there are more than 6,500 people who have been infected by the deadly virus.
Liberia is the worst affected country wherein 1,830 deaths have been reported.
According to the BBC, in the last seven days, two new areas in Guinea and Liberia have also been reportedly affected.
Some studies warn that the number of cases could rise to at least 20,000 by November.
