U.S. to Send Liberia Ebola Drug

The experimental drug to treat Ebola must be promising because the U.S. has agreed to send doses to Liberia to treat infected doctors. President Obama and the Food and Drug Administration will be dispatching the treatment at the direct request of Liberian President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf last week. The drug, known as ZMapp was administered to two Americans already, and will be delivered by a U.S. government representative this week and the World Health Organization will be sending additional doses.
