|Canada to donate untested Ebola vaccine to help battle disease in Africa |
Canada is to donate an experimental Ebola vaccine to be used to fight the disease in Africa.
The move comes after the World Health Organization decided it was ethical in the circumstances to offer untested drugs to people infected by the virus.
The Canadian government has only around 1,500 doses of the vaccine, which it invented a few years ago. It has been effective in animals but has never been tested on humans.
