Ebola Patients Offered Experimental Drugs

People infected in the West African Ebola outbreak can be offered untested drugs, says WHO

The World Health Organisation (WHO) says people infected in the West African Ebola outbreak can be offered untested drugs, however, the scarcity of supplies has raised questions about who gets priority access to treatment.

Liberia plans to treat two infected doctors with an unproven Ebola medicine called ZMapp, as they become the first Africans to receive the drug, which has already been given to a Spanish priest who later died and two United States aid workers.

The outbreak is the world's largest and deadliest and the United Nations’ World Health Organisation has already declared it an international health emergency.
