Nigeria Asks US For Ebola Treatment Drug Zmapp, Obama Turns Down Request

zmapp ebola drug nigeria

August 7, 2014 – Nigeria Asks US For Ebola Treatment Drug Zmapp, Obama Turns Down Request

In the wake of this deadly Ebola Virus disease spreading like wildfire across West Africa, Nigerian President has called for urgent need for the supply of Zmapp, an experimental drug used in treating Ebola in monkeys that worked for two American doctors that contracted the virus while working in Liberia but the US has turned down his request.

Obama said he can’t supply the experimental drug to any country for now because more testing needs to be done.

As we speak another five cases of Ebola virus infection has been reported in Lagos following the death of a matron who had primary contact with the Liberian man who allegedly brought the virus into the country.

A source said the company making Zmapp drug have problem producing larger quantities since they do not have more Ebola patients over there.

Why can’t Africans find a solution to this Ebola case. I believe there are better trained medical practitioners in Africa than other developed countries but the number one problem ravaging Africa is corruption.

Instead of investing money to develop Africa, our leaders are busy looting.

God help Nigeria, God help Africa.

    Yes i concur. Irresponsible leadership has always been the bane of The African continent. While Americans and Europeans make frantic efforts to solve their problems via massive investment in Education and Healthcare, African leaders have made Corruption and looting their major Preoocupation. Now we get into this shit and they are crying for help from the West. I’m glad that the offer for help was rejected otherwise the drug could never have been made available to the common man who gets infected with the virus rather these bastards we have as leaders I’ll chose to stockpile it for themselves alone and cry foul about limited quantity supplied. Shame on Africa, Bigger shame on Nigeria.

    @Idris why do u condemn a blessed continent in the whole world, Africa has what it takes to lead others, if our leaders will see Africa as a great continent and invest in it we will surely be a great continent, let us pray for God’s intervention concerning this deadly virus.

    Well now good luck can travel to America to ask for help. Because the ebola does not know
    Know rich or poor. I think if it was only the disease that affect only we poor people he would
    not hv moved his ass.take a look at those poor innocent girls that were kidnapped until
    now he did not but to give some money to some parents. But am surr if they were the
    Children of the rich am sure he would hv done something.
