map-liberia (1)Reuters is reporting that the White House and the United States Food and Drug Administration have approved the request for sample doses of an experimental serum to treat Liberian doctors who are currently infected with the deadly Ebola virus.

The author writes:

“The statement, posted on the Liberian presidency’s official website, said the experimental drugs would be delivered to the West African country this week by a representative of the U.S. government, following a direct appeal to Obama on Friday by Liberian President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf.”

The World Health Organization (WHO) is also dispatching the experimental serum to help the Liberian doctors infected with the virus.

President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf has also banned travel of Liberian government officials that are part of the Executive Branch for at least one month. She has also said that all officials traveling abroad for government or personal business are to return to the country or they will be considered as abandoning their jobs.
