'Extraordinary' race for Ebola vaccine raises ethical questions

(CNN) - The "extraordinary" rush to develop an Ebola vaccine is moving forward apace, the lead researcher told CNN's Christiane Amanpour on Tuesday, adding that the fast pace may engender ethical concerns about how it the vaccine is eventually implemented.

"This is, frankly, extraordinary," Adrian Hill of the Jenner Institute at Oxford University said. "We are trying to do in a few months something that might typically take 10 years. We've had accelerated reviews of all our applications, regulatory and ethical approvals, and so on."

"And we're now trying to proceed so quickly that if things go well, by the end of the year, this vaccine might actually be being used in the three affected countries in West Africa."

    I find it hard to think that their is no cure for Ebola I think the reason is that the rich like most people will agree is that they want more money and power, but here is something they have not thought of if to many people get Ebola no money in the world will save them from the people that have nothing else to lose, mankind has shown us that people will do things that most would find it stupid and crazy but if you was to put yourself in a problem like this would agree that it will lead to nothing good. But if you think I'm wrong I can see your point of view but before you do please dig a little into what the reports really say not what you hear or see on TV but really look. and you will see why I came to think the way I do. To many lies have been put out to the people in the world to insure the safety and to keep people in line in a way. I hope I'm wrong but if something isn't done I fear the worst will happen and our government's will be in fight for not only for people's life's but their own.
