Yep, you heard that right. Today it was announced that a vaccine for Ebola was found...and it was 100% successful when tested in Guinea.
In trials involving 4,000 people -- exactly 4,000 were successful.
That’s right. Remember several months ago how everyone was freaking out? Yep, we can all take a chill pill now. Or I guess, chill shot?
Børge Brende, the foreign minister of Norway, who helped fund the trial said:
“This new vaccine, if the results hold up, may be the silver bullet against Ebola, helping to bring the current outbreak to zero and to control future outbreaks of this kind.”
Humanity is killing it today...killing Ebola that is. (high five)

This is amazing! Thank goodness for good science!!! Thanks for letting all of us know @nicolejb :)
This is really cool! Good job science :D
Yep this is great. Not that anyone had given it ANY attention in the past... like... six months, though. Sadly. It was still a pretty major problem from what I understand, but it totally disappeared from the public eye.
Agreed @allischaaff! I always want to rejoice when science wins.
Hahahah loved the high five at the end. Awesome news!
