Conakry, (UrduPoint / Pakistan Point News - 23rd Feb, 2021 ) :Guinea will launch an Ebola vaccination drive Tuesday after a flight delayed by a Saharan dust storm arrived carrying thousands of jabs, as the West African country fights to stamp out a resurgence of the deadly virus.
A special flight carrying the Merck vaccine finally landed in Guinea late Monday, an AFP correspondent reported.
Inoculations are also planned in Conakry on Tuesday.
Ebola causes severe fever and, in the worst cases, unstoppable bleeding. It is transmitted through close contact with bodily fluids, and people who live with or care for patients are most at risk.
