    Pretty fascinating reading about the vaccine. It has been undergoing clinical trials but is not licensed yet anywhere in the world. They are using it early under “compassionate use”. It must be stored at -70 C which creates many logistical challenges as many places in Africa don’t evem have electricity. They are using the “ring” vaccination technique vaccinating everyone around or that came into contact with anyone infected.

    No, it spreads through bodily fluids and the epicenters are typically concentrated around societies that lack wellness infrastructure and engage in more extensive physical handling of their dead.

    I mean would you rather catch the autism or Ebola, I think the choice has never been more clear.

    There is a stigma surrounding the vaccine that it may actually harm the patients.
