Breaking: Ebola Vaccine Proves 100% Successful In Guinea

Recommended Posts

Great news concerning the fearsome topic of Ebola: A vaccine against the virus has proven to be 100% effective. Continued development and testing may soon bring the current epidemic in west Africa to an end, experts say.

As The Guardian reports, the newly developed vaccine conducted during the outbreak in Guinea has so far proven to be astonishingly successful. Results of the trials involving 4,000 people are “remarkable” because of the unprecedented speed of which the development of the vaccine and the testing were carried out.

Normally, it requires nearly a decade to produce a vaccine, but scientists, doctors, donors, and drug companies were able to collaborate and produce this breakthrough in just 12 months – a major accomplishment, indeed.

“Having seen the devastating effects of Ebola on communities and even whole countries with my own eyes, I am very encouraged by today’s news,” said Børge Brende, the foreign minister of Norway, which helped fund the trial.
