MADRID—The World Health Organization declared Tuesday that it’s ethical to use unproven Ebola drugs and vaccines in the outbreak in West Africa provided the right conditions are met.

The statement from the U.N. health agency came amid a worldwide debate over the medical ethnics surrounding the Ebola outbreak, which it has called an international health emergency. However the agency sidestepped the key questions of who should get the limited drugs and how that should be decided.

Long story short, if I had ebola (facing a 50% death rate), I'd take any experimental drug they gave me, because if I died or had further complications they'd know. If it worked, they'd also know and other people might survive.

And I can see how certain groups are going to "spin" this - more experimenting on "the black man" for example.

I must not fear. Fear is the Mind-Killer. It is the little death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear.
I will permit it to pass over me and to move through me. And when it is gone I will turn the inner eye to see it's path.
When the fear is gone, there will be nothing. Only I will remain.

You may think you're cool, but you'll never be as cool as Peter Capaldi with an electric guitar, on a tank, playing the Doctor Who theme.

Certain groups are nor smart. This outbreak is very severe and has a very high potential for spreading.  Ever and all efforts should be used in an attempt to contain it.

  • Sometimes it's better to keep the mystery unexplained.
