A US company that makes an experimental drug for treating the often deadly Ebola virus said Monday it has sent all its available supplies to West Africa.

Some 961 people have died from the hemorrhagic fever in Sierra Leone, Liberia, Guinea and Nigeria since March during the largest Ebola outbreak in history.

“In responding to the request received this weekend from a West African nation, the available supply of ZMapp is exhausted,” said a statement on the Mapp Bio website.

“Any decision to use ZMapp must be made by the patients’ medical team,” it said, adding that the drug was “provided at no cost in all cases.”

The biomedical collaboration between US and Canadian researchers involves a drug that is manufactured in tobacco leaves and is hard to produce on a large scale.

The company did not reveal which nation received the doses, or how many were sent.

CNN reported that Liberia was to receive the sample doses.

The two American missionary workers who fell ill with Ebola while working in Monrovia last month were given doses of the drug.

Both have been transported to an isolation unit at Emory University Hospital in Atlanta, Georgia, where they are receiving continuous care.

A Spanish priest who was sickened with Ebola has also been given a dose.

The ethics of distributing experimental medications to some people but not others was the focus of a special meeting of the World Health Organization on Monday.

The US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has repeatedly stressed that the drug’s effects are unknown, since it has not been through a process of rigorous clinical trials.

There is no medicine or vaccine for Ebola on the world market.

Good Move since useless Africans cant produce ova own drugs. (except for weed)

Seated in the middle is Zakari Maimalari (?-1966), a Kanuri man from Yobes state, considered to be the most influential Nigerian Army officer and the first African to be trained at the prestigious Royal Military Academy, Sandhurst in Surrey, United Kingdom. In this photo, he is seen with other non-commissioned officers from Borno State, circa 1959. Seated on his right right is Maigumeri (?-1970).

Gen. T. Yakubu Danjuma always held him in high esteem. Maimalari's death (aged 35 years) in the coup of 15th January, 1966 was the main reason for Major T. Y Danjuma's involvement in Operation Aure, on the 28th July, 1966. At the time of his death in 1966, his first child Abubakar was only 4 years old (Born. 1962). 33 years later, Gen. Abdusalami Abubakar rewarded his generosity by appointing Lt. Col. Abubakar Maimalari as governor of Jigawa State, in 1999.



I wonder why they stopped issuing these smart uniforms to the Army? (especially Officer Maimalari's Uniform)
Shorts are especially suitable for our kind of climate.
The same trend has been noticed in all former colonies of the ex-British Empire.

Stop spreading lies


On Tuesday, the U.N. health agency denied reports from Liberia that it had authorized the experimental Ebola drug for that hard-hit nation.

"We were not involved in transferring the serum and we will not be involved in any future transfers of it," said Gregory Hartl, a WHO spokesman. "WHO doesn't have any role in handing out the serum or any other experimental medicines."

WHO was holding a news conference later Tuesday to discuss the ethical issues surrounding unproven Ebola drugs and vaccines.

Liberia also backed away from its earlier claim that President Barack Obama had approved the use of experimental Ebola drugs for two Liberian doctors.

In a statement Tuesday, a U.K.-based public relations firm representing the Liberian government said the experimental Ebola treatment would be arriving within the next 48 hours.

"The two doctors gave their consent, themselves being medical professionals, for the drug to be administered," the statement said. "The drugmaker has agreed to supply a sufficient amount of this drug only for these two patients."



Enjoy the Ebola song.

Of course all doses have been sent. What do we expect from a company that until now have only 9 employees? They cannot kill themselves on our behalf. The more Africans face reality and hold their leaders responsible for their current predicament, the better.
For a virus that kill this fast, the side effect of the drugs can not be in anyway more disastrous than the illness. Even if the drug extents life by just a year only.

They want to use Africans as "Lab rat" to test the potency of the drug. But anyway sha its better to die as an experimental rat than to die of ebola.
