The death toll from the current outbreak of the Ebola Virus Disease (EVD) has risen to 9,380, the World Health Organization has said.

The number of confirmed infections also rose to 23,253 in new statistics reflecting the situation as at February 15.

A total of 128 new cases were reported within the week with 74 of those being from Sierra Leone, 52 from Guinea and two from Liberia.

Sierra Leone and Guinea witnessed a spike in cases due to several unsafe burials carried out within some communities. Corpses of Ebola victims are highly contagious.

Sierra Leone has since launched a door-to door search for infected patients to stem the recent surge in cases of Ebola.
