Does Ebola Disease cure for human exsists?

Scientists in Canada announced the successful treatment of Ebola virus infection in monkeys. The encouraging results were published in the journal Science Translational Medicine on June 13. Despite this fact scientists say this is certainly a big step forward, but many challenges remain before the treatment can be applied to people. For example, the amount of antibodies needed to treat a larger group of people would be difficult to manufacture.
So for now, there is no reliable medicine against Ebola virus.
Be extra careful if someone is trying to sell you some "pills against Ebola", most probably those people are just trying to steal your money.

And still are there ways how Nigerians can prevent Ebola Fever?
The right answer is "yes" . The following precautions can help prevent infection and spread of Ebola:
- Avoid areas of known outbreaks.
- Wash your hands frequently. It's very easy to follow this rule and it can save your life. Use soap and water, or use alcohol-based hand rubs containing at least 60 % of alcohol when soap and water aren't available.
- Avoid bush meat.
- Avoid contact with infected people. In particular, caregivers should avoid contact with the person's body fluids and tissues, including blood, semen, vaginal secretions and saliva.
- Follow infection-control procedures. If you're a health care worker, wear protective clothing, such as gloves, masks, gowns and eye shields. Keep infected people isolated from others. Dispose of needles and sterilize other instruments.
- Don't handle remains. The bodies of people who have died of Ebola hemorrhagic fever are still contagious. Specially organized and trained teams should bury the remains, using appropriate safety equipment.

Hope this helps. Please share your tips too if you have some!

CHRISTIAN CHARACTER CONFIDENCE OF THE BELIEVER: "Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls. " (Matthew 11:29). There are rewards for holding unto the word of God. God honours our faith. The foundation of such faith is what we know about God.
