Testing an Ebola Vaccine in Mali

November 6, 2014

 

I'm in #Mali 's capital Bamako to cover #Africa 's first #Ebola vaccine trial. So far preliminary results from the trial look promising.

The research began in the country about a month ago following safety trials in the UK and the US. The vaccine itself has been designed by scientists in the US and is being manufactured by the British drug company GlaxoSmithKline. With Ebola affecting three West African countries, the race to find a vaccine is on. Here's our TV report by Anne Soy, produced by Charlotte Attwood and shot by me: http://www.bbc.com/news/world-africa-29926552 #blog
