WHO approves untested drugs for Ebola
(08-13 10:25)

A panel of experts from the World Health Organisation has decided that experimental drugs, which have not been tested on humans, can be used to treat victims of the Ebola virus in West Africa.
More than a thousand people have been killed in the current outbreak. Two American aid workers are receiving an experimental treatment; a Spanish priest, who also apparently received it, has died. --RTHK
