The number of suspected, probable or confirmed cases rose by 108 over the same period to a total of 1,711. Most of the newly reported deaths were in Liberia while the number of cases in Nigeria climbed from 4 to 9, including one previous death.

(This version of the story corrects paragraph 2 to say most of latest deaths were in Liberia, not most of the latest cases)
