DRC Ebola vaccination campaign underway

OHANNESBURG, May 22 (ANA) – The Democratic Republic of the Congo began an Ebola vaccination campaign Monday in a northwest provincial capital in a major effort to stem an outbreak that already has spread from rural towns into a city of more than one million people, AP reported.

The vaccination drive started a day after the health ministry announced that a nurse had died from Ebola in Bikoro. The rural north-western town is where the outbreak announced in early May began. As many as 27 people are thought to have died from Ebola.
