Russian Federation has developed a new vaccine against the Ebola virus and is ready to supply it to Africa after the vaccine is registered, Russian Healthcare Minister Veronika Skvortsova said during a session of the Russia-Africa Economic Forum.

“Besides prevention methods, Russia has developed a unique vaccine to cure Ebola fever, which has demonstrated 100% effectiveness during tests on primates. Its clinical research is currently being finalized. After this vaccine is registered, Russia will be ready to supply it to African countries,” - Skvortsova stated.

The minister added that Russia had developed a “dry” form of the vaccine against Ebola, which can be stored in “a regular domestic fridge,” taking into account the climate conditions of African states.
