The WHO says people most at risk of contracting the deadly Ebola virus in eastern DR Congo are now being given vaccines.

More than three thousand doses have been made available to people living in the North Kivu province where the outbreak is concentrated.

The Vaccine Alliance Gavi has struck a deal with the drug’s developers to provide additional doses of the vaccine that are still in the testing stage.

Forty-four people are believed to have been infected with the virus out of which 36 have died.
