@ese it seems the health care is okay, the mortality rate is about 50% in the country. However a case of wrong diagnosis was reported weeks ago, but it's just ONE case.

This may also be another case of wrong diagnosis- the news of her being infected was barely a week old. Unless she had been infected days before word got out and was treated as soon as she was infected.

The virus rarely enters a human body and leave in less than 7 days.
A cure is still in the works however, all the drugs available are experimental ones. But a vaccine that works very well in monkeys could lead the way to the cure.
