Abstract
According to the World Health Organization (WHO) deadly disease outbreaks reappeared in three African countries affected by Ebola virus for the last week of January of this year. However, the territory of Ghana remains free from epidemic thanks to special control surveillance system which prevents the penetration of dangerous virus.The first large-scale tests of two experimental vaccines against Ebola began in Liberia. Potential means to prevent the disease were taken under heavy guard at a secret location in the territory of the republic.Scientists from the French private nonprofit Pasteur Institute, watching the spread of the virus in Guinea, explore the probability whether a fatal disease could become more contagious.
