4. Ghana turns to WHO for Ebola vaccine
Ghana will have to make a case to the World Health Organisation (WHO) to secure Ebola vaccines as a buffer to protect its citizenry, the Director-General of the Ghana Health Service (GHS), Dr. Patrick Kuma-Aboagye, has said. According to him, that had become necessary after three people had been reported dead in Guinea from Ebola.
He said the vaccine which would be given to people who were most at risk had become necessary because the country in June 2015 stopped an Ebola vaccine trial which was being undertaken in Ho in the Volta Region. He said if that trial had been undertaken in Ghana, it would have helped the country in getting an appropriate vaccine which would be tailored to the genes of the people in the country.
5. Naomi Osaka wins second Australian Open, fourth Grand Slam
It’s the fourth Grand Slam title for Naomi Osaka in as many finals. She won the first three: the 2018 U.S. Open (beating Serena Williams in the final), the 2019 Australian Open, and the 2020 U.S. Open.
Osaka’s latest title puts the 23-year-old in esteemed company. She’s the first woman to win her first four Grand Slam finals since Monica Seles did it in 1990-91 and the first player overall since Roger Federer in 2003-04. Osaka — on a 21-match winning streak — will rise to No. 2, behind Australia’s Ashleigh Barty.
