Hundreds of thousands of Ebola vaccine doses could be rolled out to west Africa by the middle of next year, the World Health Organization said Friday, after new cases of the killer virus were reported in New York and Mali.Kieny's comments came after closed-door talks on Thursday to try to find a vaccine to beat the disease that has ravaged Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone and killed almost 4,900 people.With health workers in Spain and Texas already having caught Ebola from patients originally infected in west Africa, New York mayor Bill de Blasio insisted the city was fully prepared to stop the disease in its tracks.EU leaders agreed to boost aid to combat Ebola in west Africa to one billion euros ($1.3 billion).African countries have also pledged to send more than 1,000 health workers to the most severely-hit countries.Health workers have paid a heavy price in the fight against the epidemic, with 244 deaths out of 443 cases.The WHO said after an emergency meeting on Ebola this week that the situation in the worst-hit countries was worrying as cases increase exponentially.
