Unfortunately even the World Bank has to resort to sensationalist reporting but have their facts wrong. The denominator for total health workers in Liberia they used was was much smaller than the actual workforce data shows and hence such an inflated figure of 8% of health workers that died. Off the about 8000 health workers captured in the government's HR information systems, there were as of March 2015 about 372 health workers affected by EVD of which 180 eventually died. Sadly enough though and should not have happened!
