The World Health Organization today announced that clinical trials of a preventative vaccine for the Ebola virus made by British pharma company GlaxoSmithKline may begin next month and made available by 2015.

According to AFP, Jean-Marie Okwo Bele, the WHO's head of vaccines and immunisation, said this; adding that he was optimistic about making the vaccine commercially available.
"We are targeting September for the start of clinical trials, first in the United States and certainly in African countries, since that's where we have the cases. We think that if we
start in September, we could already have results by the end of the year. And since this is an emergency, we can put emergency procedures in place ... so that we can have a vaccine available by 2015."

There is currently no available cure or vaccine for Ebola, a virus that causes severe fever and, in the worst cases, unstoppable bleeding. It has claimed close to 1,000 lives in the latest epidemic to spread across west Africa this year. Several vaccines are being tested, and a treatment made by San Diego-based Mapp Biopharmaceutical, ZMapp, has shown promising results on monkeys and may have been effective in treating two Americans recently infected in Africa.

my own view about this virus is that it was intentionally brought back to africa, either by american or british , there is claim that there is no cure nor vaccine yet, the american doctor flown from africa that was infected is getting better, so i throw this question out to you my people, where america get the cure from and why have they refused to share the cure when they know  that this thing dey kill people every day for africa? God day o
