The number of Ebola cases has risen dramatically to two thousand people who have been detected to have the deadly virus in the Democratic Republic of Congo. This is according to the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies. Now to deal with this rising outbreak medical experts are resuscitating the use of an experimental vaccine which was used in an earlier outbreak. The virus has left more than eleven thousand people dead since it affecting three West African countries in 2014.
