"We should complete the second phase on December 8 and then submit documents for registration," Anna Popova told reporters. "Everything is going as planned and we see very good results."
The most recent Ebola outbreak started in December 2013 in Guinea and later spread to Liberia and Sierra Leone. The virus has claimed the lives of over 11,000 people, according to World Health Organization (WHO) estimates.
