Guinea, Liberia, Sierra Leone - Oct 21

France’s Atomic Energy Commission has created a new tool that could allow doctors to diagnose suspected Ebola in less than 15 minutes. The device, created by pharmaceutical company Vedalab, has already undergone high-security trials and essentially turns diagnosing Ebola into a user-friendly kit. The device is handheld, requires no additional equipment, and is expected to undergo clinical trials in Ebola-hit countries by the end of October. If the device is in fact successful, it would make it much easier for affected nations to diagnose Ebola on a larger scale and could begin to curb the outbreak. Source: All Africa
