This year’s Ebola outbreak has claimed the lives of more than 6,800 people, according to the World Health Organization. “If you leave a single case untreated and then if you let that transmission continue, it could explode again,” Dr. Jim Yong Kim, president of the World Bank, tells the NewsHour.

While our recent report downgraded the economic projections for the developing world in 2014, we expect it to grow by 5.4 percent in 2015, and 5.5 percent in 2016.

A major World Bank Group report this week found that growth is stagnating in developing countries. It’s projected to be below 5 percent for the third straight year. That’s too modest to create the
