A new outbreak of the Ebola virus is "inevitable" but a new vaccine and rapid-response measures mean it will be more effectively contained, the head of the World Health Organization said.

In a major clinical trial using an innovative "ring", or group method, nearly 6,000 people in Guinea were given the test vaccine in 2015, during which not one of them contracted the disease.

The Ebola crisis that began in December 2013 killed 11,300 people in Guinea, Sierra Leone and Liberia and has left thousands more survivors with long-term health problems. The WHO was criticised at the time for responding too slowly and failing to grasp the gravity of the outbreak.
