Ebola: Liberia to Receive Sample Doses of Experimental Drug to Treat Doctors



Ellen Johnson-Sirleaf - August 2014 - BN News - 01
The Liberian government has revealed that sample doses of the experimental drug ZMapp to help combat the Ebola virus will be sent to the country to treat doctors infected with the disease.

The request was approved by the The White House as well as the United States Food and Drug Administration.

The delivery of the ZMapp to Liberia follows a request made on Friday from Liberian President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf to President Barack Obama.

It will be brought to the Liberia by a U.S. government representative this week.

    For all those who were cursing the US. Show ur faces now. Delicate decisions are not made rashly. At least the US Doctors who were receiving this drug has to be observed for sometime to ensure drug efficiency.

    Thanks to all the doctors who have worked tiredly to come up with this drug and thanks to God for the gateway. Lets hope for the best so that this deadly disease can leave our continent never to return.

    Even though i still maintain that it is very apalling that even an epidemic of this magnitude could not shake ‘The Giant of Africa’ just for once, out of its delusional grand impressions about itself, and do the needful in terms of research, this is good news still. At least for the heroes who have been brave enough to put themselves at risk to save other lives, i am most glad that help is on the way. Let us wait for the next preventable mishap that will again send us hat-in-hand begging for someone to help us out of the mess we are so fond of getting our ‘National’ selves into.
    Nigeria, please DONT grow up, you hear?
    Welcome to Liberia ZMapp.

    If the cure works, praises should go to the scientists Who worked hard and not to an invisible fictional spirit man.

    @Bruno, Invisible fictional spirit man? If what you meant was no praises to God, then there must be something wrong with you? Who gave those scientist such knowledge?

      @ H & Yvonne, anyone – pls kindly answer
      if God gives knowledge for which man has used to make huge advancements why does God then require us to set aside the wonderful gift of knowledge & with that reason, logic, rational thought when it comes to knowledge of his existence and instead rely on faith alone?

    I am also positive it would work and Glory be to God the creator of those original doctors and the giver of knowledge.
    @Bruno, i have seen your type severally. However people like you always bow down at the end and accept that there is God and He is faithful. I said it in earlier post, it appears you are running for elections in hell and your assignment is to discredit God.

    Lmao at running for elections in hell. We are a very special people. We should definitely give credit to the scientists but remember that their motivations are numerous. Some care about the world, some are driven by self-glorification, and some do it for the money that pharmaceuticals will gain. The two major organizations who have selflessly worked on the frontlines are Medecins Sans Frontiers and Samaritan’s Purse and the latter is a Christian NGO.Before they hire you sef they want to see your commitment to the Christian faith and it is true Christian precepts that drive such organizations to risk their lives every day. Don’t be fooled by Nigerian churches always looking for church-building fund. Outside, many churches raise funds for causes, donate food, volunteer to physically build homes for the needy, provide water at races for cancer. Christianity has driven some of the good medical workers fighting Ebola and to discount it completely would be to insult them and all they’re doing.
