The Head of Research at the Kintampo Health Research Centre and Principal Investigator of the Ebola Vaccine trail, Dr Kwaku Poku Asante says the intended Ebola Vaccine trial which has been suspended is not an efficacy trial.

He asked the public to be confident in the trial adding that it is to determine safety and whether the body will build immune response to the vaccine.

A section of the public panicked over the intended trial because they argue Ghana is an Ebola free country, hence that exercise will rather infect people but Dr Asante said there is no cause for alarm.

He was speaking in Accra at a Public sensitization and Education forum on the controversial Ebola Vaccine trial in the country.
