The World Health Organization recently warned that the Ebola outbreak in West Africa, the worst on record, could infect more than 20,000 people. The death toll so far has been estimated at more than 1,900.

We're also joined by Suzanne Van Hulle, senior technical advisor with Catholic Relief Services, who has been monitoring the situation there since the outbreak began in March.
