Notice the words from the manufacturer “However, the manufacturer of the drug, California-based Mapp Biopharmaceutical, has already said its scarce supplies have been exhausted.” Think of it, we would not be much better off if the same happened in the country, long distance travel is common, but at least those countries in Africa did not import the Ebola disease on purpose like the U.S., gambling that it would not spread. Yes gambling, for if the CDC is so smart they would have had found a cure, No, the 2 treated in Atlanta were not guinea pigs, just test cases, good luck with that one. If a cure is found I’m sure the Medicines would be given out for free, just like all the free HIV medicines, when that got started.
