The head of the World Health Organization said on Sunday there had been another reported case of Ebola in the DRC and that an experimental vaccine to fight the disease was expected to become available in the country this week.

"The Senate is disturbed that recent reports of media outlets and the World Health Organisation show that the disease is back in neighbouring Democratic Republic of Congo with 19 dead and 39 casualties recorded so far". Also, James Manager (PDP Delta South) described the motion as "a wake-up call" for everybody in the country on the virus in particular, and for the government to be at alert, noting that "Ebola is a unsafe disease that had ravaged Nigeria in the past whereby it killed some people". The Senate is further reminded that the DRC is 435 kilometres by air from Abuja and is easily accessible via a flight from Lagos that takes less than three hours.

According to her, unless hospitals are prepared properly and equipped with Ebola vaccines, it will be an epidemic Nigeria may be unable to take on.
