Nigeria- Director-General of National Agency for Food and Drug Administration and Control (NAFDAC), Dr. Paul Orhii yesterday gave assurances that some drugs and vaccines are likely to be discovered soon in the country to contain the dreaded Ebola Virus Disease (EVD).

In a statement, he said: “We have some Nigerian remedies that we are looking at very closely and after investigation we hope that they will be able to contain the Ebola virus, so Nigerians do not need to panic.”
