Nigeria requested the experimental Ebola drug,ZMapp, from the United States and they were denied. Now, the Spanish government confirmed that the 75 year old Spanish Catholic priest, Miguel Pajares, who got infected with Ebola while working in Liberia will be treated with the experimental drug (ZMapp), which was given to them by the United States.
The drug arrived today from the US for use at the Madrid’s La Paz-Carlos III hospital where he is in isolation.
Ghanaian actress, Juliet Ibrahim, was very upset about the incident and she took to her instagram page to air her displeasure. Read what she wrote:
“Nigeria asked for the Zmapp drug and was refused the drug! Now Spanish priest who is now back home safely yet suffering from Ebola; Spanish government request for the exact same drug and they are getting the drug to cure him! Africans! Africans! Africans!
