And what do you suppose that vaccine would cost?

As of Dec 20, no price announced

The vaccine, Ervebo, was approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration on Thursday, a month after Europe gave its nod to the vaccine, a move that has been hailed by the World Health Organization.

“We have made a commitment to making the vaccine available to GAVI-eligible countries at the lowest possible access price,” Merck spokesman Skip Irvine said. “We have made that commitment but we have not yet established the price for the vaccine.

Default Ebola outbreak in Congo wanes

Let us not neglect the Old Standards!

Quote:

ADDIS ABABA, Ethiopia — The second-biggest Ebola outbreak in history, which has upended life in eastern Congo’s North Kivu and Ituri provinces since August 2018, infecting nearly 3,500 people and killing about 2,250, is down to its last chain of transmission.

Despite ongoing violence that has hampered the response from its outset, and that has spiked again recently, new cases have dwindled. At its height last May, hundreds were contracting the disease every week.

Well, we couldn't have things settle down could we?

Quote:
The new Ebola outbreak is in the western city of Mbandaka, the capital of the Équateur Province. The city—situated at the junction of the Congo and Ruki Rivers—is a major trade and travel hub and home to more than 1 million people.

On Monday, June 1, 2020, officials confirmed an outbreak with six cases so far (three confirmed, three probable). Four of the cases have died, and two are being treated. The World Health Organization reported that officials expect to find more cases as outbreak responses ramp up.

The outbreak is the 11th recorded in the DRC since Ebola was discovered in the country in 1976.

Officials believe that the DRC’s new outbreak is unrelated to the ongoing 10th outbreak, which began in August 2018 on the eastern side of the country—in the North Kivu, South Kivu, and Ituri provinces. That outbreak has included 3,463 cases (3,317 confirmed and 146 probable), and 2,280 people have died, making it the second-largest outbreak recorded.

Great just what we need. Ebola mixes with Covid and goes airborne. Sounds like a Stephen King book...

Default And yet again ...

Meanwhile, officials in the Democratic Republic of the Congo have confirmed four cases in the North Kivu Province, where the second-largest Ebola outbreak ended in June of 2020. That outbreak had a total of nearly 3,500 cases and nearly 2,300 deaths. It’s unclear if the new cases are linked to that outbreak via latent, persistent infection or if it represents a new “spillover” event of the virus moving to humans from an unidentified animal host.
Quick, Gavin, call a lockdown!

Quote:
The Ebola viruses behind a new outbreak in Guinea are stunningly similar to viruses identified during the massive West Africa outbreak that spanned 2013 to 2016, according to a new genetic analysis. The finding suggests that virus may have silently persisted in a survivor for at least five years and that the current outbreak was sparked by that unlucky person, rather than a spillover from an animal reservoir.

You didn't think 'the hook' was done with us, did you?



Toddler dies of Ebola after 3 suspicious deaths in DRC; 148 contacts identified
Quote:
The boy's death closely follows the suspicious deaths of three of his neighbors, a father and his two daughters. One of the daughters died on September 14, followed by the father's death on September 19 and the other daughter's death on September 29. The family displayed symptoms consistent with Ebola but were not tested for the virus. The two daughters, however, had tested positive for malaria.
