Y’all believe it now?

You’re fucking kidding me right?

People are suffering to Ebola and America had a way to potentially cure it

AND THEY REFUSE A FUCKING REQUEST?

Does saving lives not mean anything to anyone anymore?

I fucking cant

Who’s really surprised? AMERICA isn’t shit & never will be.

They said it costing too much was part of the issue but I haven’t seen the government have any issue with the billions of dollars they constantly give Israel to do any mother fucking thing they please.

Seriously?! the US ain’t shit

Didn’t they give it to a Spanish patient today

Wtf America

It’s fucking true. They said no to Nigeria. But then ship it right the fuck out to Spain for one patient.

It is so hard to love a country that does not value you/people who look like you.

Told y’all this was going to happen. Just like what they did with the HIV/AIDS drug treatments. 

Listen up peeps! Time for some education! The ZMapp is NOT dubbed as a cure yet! It is in the experimental stages where it hasn’t even been widely tested on humans yet. Because it’s still in clinical trials we don’t know if it actually works yet or what kind of side effects exist. Due to it being a clinical trial drug, it isn’t being massed produced. Right now what we do have of the drug is already been distributed. So the next question is, “Why aren’t we mass producing it?” Again we don’t know if it is even effective with only a hand full of human test subjects or if it has any severe side effects. Also if we mass produce a useless drug we are taking away other resources and time from drugs that are in need and that we know works (as heartless as that sounds). Here is my resource for the ZMapp drug (cause in the medical field you need to source your shit!).

Secondly, the most important thing with Ebola is containing the disease with strict quarantines and cleaning procedures for those exposed and disposing of the bodies properly. It’s highly contagious through bodily fluids. Unfortunately Ebola is scary shit so the people are afraid to admit exposure or submit to quarantines (because so many people die). Because of this they’ve been dumping bodies in the streets in order to avoid being quarantined. Some have retrieved loved ones from quarantine sites to bury them properly thinking that the outsiders are not there to help, but to exert control (who can blame them with all the civil war in those areas). This only increases the exposure to people and the spread rate. In the past Ebola was stopped in areas with containment and quarantine, but they are having difficulties with that as the news has documented. Another source:

Before you start placing blame on the government or the medical professionals trying to make this drug available, please do your research.

Police officers in Ferguson, Missouri, have begun wearing body cameras after weeks of unrest over the shooting death of an unarmed black teen by a white officer and sharply differing accounts of the incident, officials said on Sunday.
Michael Brown, 18, was shot multiple times by Ferguson Police Officer Darren Wilson on Aug. 9, sparking nearly three weeks of angry protests in the St. Louis suburb and drawing global attention to race relations in the United States.
Law enforcement and witnesses gave differing accounts of what transpired before Brown was shot, with police saying the teen had struggled with the officer. Witnesses say Brown held up his hands and was surrendering when he was shot multiple times in the head and chest.
The discrepancy has revived calls for officers across the county to be outfitted with body cameras to help capture an accurate record of police-involved incidents.
