Russian President Vladimir Putin has announced that Russia has invented the world’s most effective drug for Ebola.
The latest outbreak of Ebola has ravaged West Africa for the past two years. There has been no proven cure for Ebola so far, although rapid progress has been made towards vaccines. According to president Putin, Russia has registered a medicine for the Ebola which after the relevant tests, has proven to have a high effectiveness, higher than those drugs which until now have been used in the world.
Putin’s announcement comes just as the WHO is expected to declare the Ebola epidemic.
