How did the two doctors get released from Atlanta hospital if they were infected with Ebola? Basically, I thought Ebola doesn't have a cure yet?

They have a cure and tested it on humans before it reached clinical trials.

Basically the sick rolled the dice and hoped to high hell that it would arrest the spread of Ebola before they started bleeding outta their nipples and anuses.

It's a virus. It doesn't live forever. Just usually longer than the host.

It's not a cure, just a treatment. And it is not yet known if it even helped any of the patients that received it.

if this drug works, or these trials, why not test them on the people in Africa? also, how did this Ebola virus start up again in the last few months?

That is what they're trying to determine. You don't give everyone an experimental drug before it's been properly tested.

Because it wasn't eradicated?
