The West African state of Senegal became the fifth country to be touched by the world's worst Ebola outbreak Friday, while riots broke out in neighboring Guinea, where infection rates are rising fast.At least 1,550 people have died of Ebola and more than 3,000 have been infected since the virus was detected in the remote jungles of southeastern Guinea in March, and quickly spread across the border to Liberia and Sierra Leone.The World Health Organization warned Thursday the actual number of cases could be up to four times higher and said that a total of 20,000 people could be infected before the outbreak ends.In the latest sign that the outbreak is spinning out of control, the WHO said Friday that the number of Ebola cases rose by the highest weekly amount since the epidemic began in Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone.More than 120 health care workers have died in the epidemic.
