OK, firstly let me just say it is great news that both Kent Brantly and Nancy Writbol have survived the dreaded Ebola virus. However, some things still concern me. Firstly, I am sure the pharmaceutical companies are more advanced in the cure for Ebola than they are letting on. Reason? Well, ‘Lady al Qaeda’ the MIT-educated neuroscientist who is now spending 86 years behind bars in Texas was planning to explode a dirty bomb full of Ebola and chemicals when caught in 2008. The US government has known that the Ebola virus was/is part of terrorists arsenal, so of course they would be racing to find a cure . I am sure we don’t even know the half of it.
Secondly, if they can risk giving the new experimental antidote on “Western white people” why wouldn’t they have tried to save Dr. Modupeh Cole and Dr. Sheik Humarr Khan, two brilliant “African” Sierra Leone doctors who were leading the fight against the disease. I think the excuse and justification ie we only having a small dose of the medicine , is probably a mis-truth because a) they didn’t want “Sophie’s Choice” scenarios and b) there is no money in it for them. Just saying.
