    Your statement is fundamentally false; https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ebola_vaccine#Vaccines_in_development_and_in_use

    I also consider it highly distasteful to play such a nationalist angle on an issue like this. I’d hope and expect most of the people working on these various potential vaccines, wherever they’re based and whoever they’re working for, would see success as humans having a vaccine, not just Russia, the US or Europe.

    Sorry, as much as Chekov might want to claim that it "was inwented by a little old woman in Lenningrad", the first 70%-100% Effective vaccine that is currently undergoing trials was invented by the Canadians.
