Which countries are most likely to have a new Ebola virus case?

The number of Ebola cases in the United States has increased dramatically in recent weeks.

Since March, there have been 1,637 new confirmed cases in this country, according to the CDC.

On Friday, the number of cases in Texas climbed to 1,737, up from 1,400 on Monday, the agency reported.

Meanwhile, in Liberia, which has been suffering from the Ebola virus for years, there were 613 new cases on Monday.

The number in Sierra Leone jumped to 631 on Monday as well.

This isn’t the first time the US has seen an increase in cases.

The US saw a spike in cases in August 2015.

The CDC said at the time that the virus had reached the United Kingdom, the Philippines, Australia, and New Zealand.

On Monday, officials in New Zealand confirmed a new case.

This is not the first spike in case numbers.

In December, the World Health Organization said there had been an increase of 21% in cases since March in the US.

There are currently 1,922 cases in all of West Africa, including 1,000 in Texas.
