World Experts Beg US to ‘give Africans Experimental cure’ for Ebola Virus



International experts have called for the administration of a said treatment for the #Ebola virus to those who needed it in the West African region.

West African authorities are reportedly outraged that the treatment was given to two US aid workers in #Liberia – where disease has killed 255 people.
