Chukwu said that out of the 10 confirmed cases, five were responding to treatment, while three were not doing so well, adding that the treatment of the eight people quarantined in the past weeks primarily involved antibiotics and electrolytes replacement to combat dehydration in the absence of definite response from the US for the experimental drug ZMapp, which was administered to two American doctors who contracted

What a horrible way to die.. S&F... Let us all hope those who are dealing with this stuff get a handle on its spread.. I read someplace last week there were 1800+ infected.... so at this point we can expect more deaths.

Lagos is a major city for it to spread. Not good

The thing about Lagos is that they more or less knew from the start what he had, so they have a chance at keeping it contained there. Guinea, Sierra Leonne, and Liberia never had that chance. Nigeria, on the other hand, has a clear "Patient Zero" type scenario here. Let's hope it's all they have to deal with, and they can keep a handle on it. If they can, then there is a chance that they can feed enough supportive care the infected to minimize their losses and save some who would otherwise not have a chance.
