Petition by
Ify Asogwa
London, United Kingdom

The latest Ebola virus outbreak has quickly become a continental epidermic and countries in Africa are struggling to contain the spread. There is a danger that if not contained it could spread like wildfire resulting in the needless loss of valuable human lives in the countries in West Africa that have reported cases of infections.

We have read with interest and dismay of the 2 Americans and 1 Spanish that were infected with Ebola and have been evacuated by their countries then treated with the experimental drug ZMapp. ZMapp has been successful in helping their recovery from the Ebola virus which is known to have a 90% mortality rate. The countries where these individuals are from were able to procure this expereimental drug ZMapp quickly enough to prevent the loss of their lives. This is in contrast with the lives of people in West Africa that are dying everyday as the disease continues to spread and the health authorities struggle to contain it.

Guinea, Sierra Leone, Liberia and Nigeria , the four countries in Africa battling with the Ebola outbreak have requested access to ZMapp and instead of this live saving medicine being provided immediately in order to save lives and prevent the outbreak of a epidermic that would be a contiental disaster, they are still embroiled in the bureaucratic processes which were obviously waivered for Spain and the US citizens.

I invite you to stand with me and the people in Guinea, Sierra Leone, Liberia and Nigeria who are under immediate threat from this global epidermic and sign this petition calling on the makers of ZMapp, the United Nation and The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention , United States to provide immediate access to this life saving medicines.

We believe Every human life is VALUABLE and deserves to be fought for. If you believe the same then please sign this petition and share it on social media.

LET'S GET THE WORLD TO ACT NOW TO SAVE LIVES.

To:
Makers of ZMapp, United Nations and CDC, LeafBio, Inc. 6160 Lusk Blvd. #C104 San Diego, CA 92121 VM/Fax 858 625 0335
Ban Ki-moon, Secretary General, United Nations, 1st ave. and 46th street New York, NY 10017 USA
