RUSSIA — The Kremlin on Friday said it is working to develop a vaccine to fight the deadly Ebola virus in the Kremlin.

The news agency Interfax quoted Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov as saying that the Russian government is working on the vaccine, which would be made available to citizens of Russia at the end of March.

Peskov did not give a timeframe for when the vaccine might be released.

Russia launched its own Ebola vaccination campaign in August, deploying 4,000 troops to the country to help local hospitals and health care workers vaccinate people against the virus.
