British Ebola patient given ZMAPP, according to press reports today. Nurse Will Pooley was infected while working in an Ebola clinic in Sierra Leone and was transported by the Royal Air Force to a specialty unit in London over the weekend.
Although no further supplies of ZMAPP were said to be available from the manufacturer, British physicians and scientists began an international outreach to colleagues after Pooley’s arrival in the UK to locate doses of the experimental drug.
The patient is reportedly stable at this time and sitting up in bed reading and conversing with staff. Doctors say they plan to give additional doses later in his course if needed.
