    Secret serum likely saved Ebola patients[W:21]

    Secret serum likely saved Ebola patients - CNN.com

    Brantly asked that Writebol be given the first dose because he was younger and he thought he had a better chance of fighting it, and she agreed. However, as the first vial was still thawing, Brantly's condition took a sudden turn for the worse.
    Brantly began to deteriorate and developed labored breathing. He told his doctors, "I am going to die," according to a source with firsthand knowledge of the situation.

    Knowing his dose was still frozen, Brantly asked if he could have Writebol's now-thawed medication. It was brought to his room and administered through an IV. Within an hour of receiving the medication, Brantly's condition was nearly reversed. His breathing improved; the rash over his trunk faded away. One of his doctors described the events as "miraculous."
    Hopefully, this is the cure, and there are no subsequent side effects.

    Meanwhile, the world will claim the U.S. was just letting Africans die all the while. Just watch.

    **** the world, they're just jealous that their countries are inferior to the U.S in almost every way outside of maybe culture.

    It's easy to be jealous of the strongest nation in the world.

    My guess is this medicine is very expensive to produce.

    They might get denied by the death panel though.

    Problem solved! They're all going to die anyway. It's just a matter of when. The mitigating factor might be whether or not the Liberians have sufficient capital to pay taxes for a while before they die. And a penalty for not paying them, if they don't have the money. Perfectly logical.
