New Ebola Vaccine Tested on Spanish Volunteers

New Ebola Vaccine Tested on Spanish Volunteers

A new Ebola vaccine is being tested for the first time in Europe on volunteers at a Spanish hospital in Madrid and 40 health workers are being checked to see if they develop any side effects.
When the same vaccine was used on 4,000 people in Guinea the World Health Organization (WHO) said it was 100% effective, Euronews reported.
The infection Unit chief at La Paz Hospital Jose Ramon Arribas, stressed the program’s importance.
 “A vaccine that works, …that would be enormous progress.”
One doctor taking part in the Spanish test said he only experienced a fever which came and easily went from the vaccine.
There is still much to be learnt about Ebola particularly in the light of the case of a British nurse who seemingly made a full recovery but is now critically ill after the virus re-emerged. In 2013, Ebola infected 28,000 people in three West African countries (Guinea, Sierra Leone and Liberia) killing more than 11,000. Even today there are still people dying from the disease.
