HOLY CRAP IT WORKED.
Ebola kills nearly everyone who contracts the virus, but two lucky Americans appear to have beaten the odds and SURVIVED!
Dr. Kent Brantly and missionary Nancy Writebol have both been released from an Atlanta hospital after becoming infected while treating patients in Liberia.
The two underwent rigorous blood and urine tests to guarantee that the virus was no longer present in their systems. Doctors and medical experts say the reason they’re alive may be all thanks to an experimental drug cocktail called ZMapp.

An American doctor who selflessly traveled to Africa in order to stop the spread of Ebola has now tested positive for the disease himself.
Kent Brantly, a 33-year-old father of two, noticed the signs and symptoms of the incurable disease in his own body and immediately quarantined himself. He told the parishoners of his church that he believes his faith will be what saves him now.
