Barack Obama says: Too early to send experimental Ebola drug to Africa ,US President, Barack Obama said yesterday August 6th that it’s too early to send the unapproved experimental drug, Zmapp serum to Africa where the outbreak of the Ebola virus has recorded more deaths and threatens human existence. Zmapp serum has proven to be effective in treating Ebola cases as two American doctor infected with the virus in Liberia are currently being treated in the US and are said to have improved after the use of the drug.
According to AFP, President Obama suggested that affected African countries should focus more on building strong public infrastructures.”I think we have to let the scientist guide us. And I don’t think all the information is in on whether this drug is helpful”.
