The World Health Organization sent the first 4,000 doses of an Ebola vaccine to Congo Wednesday, the first time the experimental vaccine has been deployed since it was developed during the last big outbreak two years ago.Health workers have recorded two confirmed cases, 22 probable cases and 17 suspected cases of Ebola in three health zones of Congo's Equateur province, and identified 432 people who may have had contact with the disease.The WHO is worried about the disease reaching the city of Mbandaka with a population of about 1 million people, which would make the outbreak far harder to tackle.
