The World Health Organization says, it has pre-qualified an Ebola vaccine, paving the way to make the vaccine available in countries most at risk of outbreaks.
This is the first vaccine ever developed to fight the deadly virus.
The WHO says, a US drug maker has tested the vaccine on around 16,000 people, and the test proved that the vaccine protected them from the virus, without causing health risks.
Following European regulatory approval earlier this week, the WHO declared that the vaccine has met all of its safety and efficacy standards.
WHO Director-General: Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus says, Ebola is now preventable and treatable.
More than 2,000 people in the Democratic Republic of Congo have died of Ebola fever, since August 2018.
