Experimental Ebola drug arrives in Liberia

US company sends limited supply of potentially life-saving serum to Liberia.

    A US company has sent to Liberia limited supplies of a serum that may help those afflicted by Ebola.

    In West Africa the outbreak has killed more than 1000 people since December, and the virus has no cure. Two US missionaries showed improvement after receiving the treatment, and three infected medics in Liberia will now receive it.
