Guinea starts Ebola vaccine campaign as cases emerge

  • The vaccination uses the 'ring strategy' where all people who have come into contact with a confirmed Ebola patient are given the vaccine, as well as frontline and health workers.
  • The last time Guinea faced an Ebola outbreak, vaccines were still being developed.

J&J applies to WHO for emergency use listing of COVID-19 vaccine

  • J&J said an emergency use listing is a prerequisite for supplying vaccines to the COVAX vaccine program, co-led by WHO, which aims to deliver doses to poor and middle-income countries.
  • The J&J vaccine is administered in a single dose and can be stored at normal fridge temperatures, a big selling point in countries with relatively weaker healthcare infrastructure.

China refused to provide WHO team with raw data on early COVID cases, team member says

  • The team had requested raw patient data on the 174 cases of COVID-19 that China had identified from the early phase of the outbreak in the Chinese city of Wuhan in December 2019.
  • "That's standard practice for an outbreak investigation," he told Reuters on Saturday via video call from Sydney, where he is currently undergoing quarantine.
