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.
