DR Congo approves use of Ebola vaccination


Democratic Republic of Congo’s health ministry has approved the use of a new Ebola vaccine to counter an outbreak of the haemorrhagic fever in north-eastern Congo that has killed four people, a spokesman said.

“The non-objection was given. Now there’s a Medecins Sans Frontiers team arriving today to validate the protocol with the technical teams,” Jonathan Simba, a health ministry spokesman, said.
