    Provisional data show a total of 1,129 cases reported from the four remaining endemic countries (Sudan, Ethiopia, Ghana, Mali) in January-July 2010, which is 43% fewer cases than the 1,994 cases that were reported during the same period of 2009. 75% of this year’s cases have been contained so far, versus 78% of cases in January-July 2009.
