... So, we can conclude that ZMapp works, no wonder it wasn't given infected Africans :facepalm:



Aid group: 2nd US worker with Ebola released

ATLANTA (AP) — An aid group says a second American aid worker has been released after she was treated at an Atlanta hospital for the Ebola virus.

The group SIM says Nancy Writebol was discharged from Emory University Hospital on Tuesday.

A news conference was planned for 11 a.m. Thursday at Emory to discuss the discharge of Writebol and another aid worker, Dr. Kent Brantly. The aid group he worked for says he was expected to be released Thursday.

Brantly and Writebol were flown out of the west African nation of Liberia earlier this month and were treated for the deadly disease in an isolation unit at the hospital.

The two were infected while working at a missionary clinic outside Liberia's capital.

Good thing they found a cure. But in all honesty I believe they probably had one all along but were just waiting for the right time to unveil it and get a profit from it. I'm sure there have been talks behind closed doors between the pharmaceutical companies and the African governments to discuss the multimillion contracts.



Yes it is a good thing Liliana, and thanks for posting your sentiments. Also, you raise a very good point about financial collusion; if I find anything verifiable, I'll post it here.

How doctors know an Ebola patient is no longer contagious


"After a rigorous and successful course of treatment and testing, the Emory health care team has determined that both patients have recovered from the Ebola virus and can return to their families and community without concern for spreading this infection to others," said Ribner.

He said patients who do not show clinical symptoms of the virus for two days are believed to no longer be contagious, though he wasn't specific about which types of lab tests were conducted to make the final call, perhaps out of respect for his patients' privacy.

Dr. Kent Brantly, right, an Ebola patient at Emory Hospital, stands with his wife, Amber Brantly, during a press conference announcing his release from the hospital in Atlanta, Georgia, Aug. 21, 2014. Dr. Brantly and another patient, Nancy Writebol, were released from Emory Hospital after receiving treatment for Ebola that they both contracted while working as medical missionaries in Liberia.

Think about it. The pharmaceutical companies get rich and the African governments are presented as saviors to their constituency.
