Russia says a vaccine against the Ebola hemorrhagic fever is now
undergoing pre-clinical tests and will soon be available for the fight against the dangerous virus.

According to the Russian Ministry of Health ,the vaccine is being developed by the Vector State Research Center.

The Ministry said there are currently no licensed drugs or
vaccines against the deadly disease.

The worst Ebola outbreak in
history started in February, in Guinea and quickly spread to its
neighbouring countries.

The virus is transmitted through direct contact with the blood, body fluids or tissue of infected animals or people.

Symptoms of the disease include the sudden onset of fever, weakness, muscle pain, headache and sore throat followed by vomiting, diarrhoea, rash, kidney and liver problems, and in some cases, both internal and external bleeding.

The World Health Organization is doing everything possible to stop the virus from spreading across borders by bringing more doctors and epidemiologists to the most affected regions.
