EU Ebola vaccine approval is landmark moment: World Health Organization

12 November 2019

Cases of Ebola virus are slowing down in the Democratic Republic of the Congo, but it is still way too soon to say the deadly disease is beaten.

That’s the message from the World Health Organization (WHO), which on Tuesday also hailed the decision by European regulators to green light the production of a new Ebola vaccine.

This will help prevent future outbreaks from spreading, the agency’s Christian Lindmeier told UN News’s Daniel Johnson.
