[Correspondence] Ebola vaccination

In 1994, a 34-year-old female ethologist was diagnosed with Ebola virus disease after completing an autopsy on a wild chimpanzee.1 Laboratory investigations led to the isolation of a new species of Ebola virus, Taï Forest Ebolavirus, named after its place of origin. Before the emergence of Zaire Ebolavirus in west Africa, this case was the first documentation of Ebola virus disease in the region and the only reported case of Ebola virus disease caused by Taï Forest Ebolavirus to date.1
