Congo-Kinasha's health minister stopped a new Ebola vaccine which could be given to millions of people – even though the WHO recommended the vaccine.
The minister is now resigning and a new possibility for vaccination has been revealed in the ongoing crisis, which is the second worst ever.
In connection with the World Health Organization (WHO) classification of the Ebola outbreak in Congo-Kinshasa as an international emergency, an alarm came to the conclusion that the Ebola vaccine used to vaccinate healthcare professionals and people exposed to infection risks.
WHO, along with doctors without borders, has therefore recommended a new type of vaccination in parallel. New vaccination, manufactured by the American company Johnson & Johnson, has only been tested to some extent, but has shown good results. In addition, it should be in over a million doses.
