Just one week ago, anyone who predicted even 100,000 Ebola infections was called an alarmist. The idea of 100,000 infections was insane, we were told, because western governments and their medical experts would soon get the outbreak under control.
Yesterday, however, the CDC publicly predicted 550,000 to 1.4 million infections by January, and the numbers were printed by USA Today  and other publications.
Suddenly, the 100,000 prediction is now considered an optimistic "best case scenario." Alarm bells are ringing through the ears of infectious disease experts everywhere around the world. Could Ebola really surpass one million infections by early 2015?
Panic for profit? Or legitimate global threat?
The CDC's sudden leap from estimates in the low thousands to a scenario of over one million people is raising lots of question marks, especially given the CDC's track record of exaggerating pandemic disease reports in order to create demand for drug company vaccines. After all, the CDC largely fabricated the swine flu outbreak in order to generate billions in vaccine profits a few years back, and all the CDC's top people are beholden to drug company interests.
So the question is legitimate: Could Ebola really escalate to one million infections by early 2015, or is this just pandemic propaganda being unleashed by the CDC to create market demand for vaccines?
A New York Times article  says that governments are vastly underestimating the number of Ebola infections actually taking place. Official statistics, we are told, may be under-reporting the number of infections by a factor of 2.5. Even honest attempts to count Ebola victims may be entirely unreliable for the simple reason that Ebola patients no longer run to hospitals for treatment because all the hospital beds are full.
Ebola is clearly replicating at a rapid pace, and a recent study conducted in cooperation with Arizona State University found that each Ebola infection taking place right now results in another 1.4 to 1.7 infections soon thereafter. 
The raw data used for that study show a clear exponential trend in the cumulative number of infections across Sierra Leone, Liberia and Guinea:
