Ebola update: Still a public health emergency?, Vaccine news and current case counts

In the first Ebola Virus Disease (EVD) update in about a month, I take a look at some of the happenings at the meeting of the International Health Regulations (2005) Emergency Committee for Ebola virus disease in the Democratic Republic of the Congo on 18 October 2019.

Is it still a a public health emergency of international concern (PHEIC)?

I also look at current case/death counts from the DRC and some of the latest violence against Ebola health workers that continues to hamper the response.

Lastly, I go over some interesting and good news on Ebola vaccines.
