Excellent work. I always enjoy viewing your newest charts. They really paint the picture clearly. The only other thing I think that is missing that would help is maybe post what the actual total running tally is for instance when you say you included the numbers from September 17, is that 5,800 infected and 2,863 deaths?
Thank you for your dedication. Maybe you will have had an impact on this Ebola outbreak in a positive way by bringing it to people's attention.

The numbers keep going up. No end in sight yet.
Thanks again for the charts!
Since the first truckload of corpses arrived Saturday, residents of Johnsonville have vehemently rejected the use of their community to dispose of the bodies. According to Kpeh-Kpeh Town Chief Joseph S. Karway, the community's main concern is that the plot of land where the graves have been dug is a wetland on the bank of a river that is a source of water for many surrounding communities. They fear that their wells – from which they get water for drinking and domestic use – will get contaminated, exposing them to other diseases.
Furthermore, the land designated for the disposal of the corpses is privately owned, with cornerstones conspicuously planted and marked. One of the landowners, a businessman named Mr. Cole, said he was never contacted regarding the use of the piece of land he had purchased with a probated deed for his son, Joseph F. Dolo (cornerstone marked: JFD). “I’m not asking them to pay me [money] for my land. I’m going to take the authorities to task for illegally using my land to bury dead bodies,” he said.
6553 (probable, confirmed and suspected; see Annex 2) cases and 3083 deaths have been reported
in the current outbreak of EVD as at 23 September 2014 by the Ministries of Health of Guinea,
Liberia, and Sierra Leone (table 1).
