The head of the World Health Organization, Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, says the first doses of a new trial vaccine for Ebola will be sent to Uganda next week.
Dr. Tedros said a clinical trial program would test whether the jab was effective against a Sudanese variant of Ebola.
He said three separate candidate vaccines had been evaluated by a committee of external experts.
The Ugandan authorities say they’re starting to succeed in their efforts to contain the current outbreak.
At least 55 people have died.
Dr. Tedros said an additional 22 people had been assessed as probable deaths.
Seventy-three patients have recovered from Ebola infection.
