Switzerland: WHO 'better placed' to manage Ebola than 2014 — Director-General

Director-General of World Health Organisation (WHO) Dr Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus commented on recent reports of new cases of Ebola in the Democratic Republic of the Congo at the World Health Assembly in Geneva on Monday. «It's concerning that we now have cases of Ebola in an urban centre, but we are much better placed to deal with this outbreak than we were in 2014. I'm pleased to say that... Еще vaccination is starting as we speak today,» Ghebreyesus said. Last Wednesday, the first 4,000 doses of Ebola vaccines touched down in the DRC capital of Kinshasa. In addition, the WHO in Geneva received an additional batch of 2,000 doses of medicine from the pharmaceutical company Merck, which will be shipped out to the Democratic Republic of the Congo in the coming days. On May 11, the WHO confirmed that there is an Ebola virus outbreak in the Equator province.
