WHO - Investigating Cause of Death During an Outbreak of Ebola Virus Haemorrhagic Fever Using VERBAL AUTOPSY
Shit like this makes me question the official numbers we are being given even more...

Investigating cause of death during an outbreak of Ebola virus haemorrhagic fever: draft verbal autopsy instrument
1. Background
Verbal autopsy consists of retrospective interviews with the next of kin. It is an alternative to autopsies, when cadavers are not available for examination, or when laboratory services for confirmation of cause of death are not accessible or feasible. Experience has shown that verbal autopsies work well for causes of death that have distinctive and noticeable features, not commonly found in other causes of death (WHO, 1995). The fact that cases of EHF have had exposures to other cases or to infected animals, coupled with the dramatic symptoms and signs of EHF, meets those criteria to some extent. Therefore, it should be possible to use verbal autopsy for investigating deaths during outbreaks of EHF. In fact, verbal autopsy instruments have been used in a number of past outbreaks, but each of these outbreaks used different instruments. To date, there is no standard, verbal autopsy instrument for use during outbreaks of EHF.
...
To this end, the current document also contains information on how to carry out a validation study, which compares the results of a verbal autopsy questionnaire with the results of a “gold standard” – such as laboratory test or clinical diagnosis.

They aren't even blood testing most of the suspected cases...
