Ebola : Blood from Survivors being sold on new Black Market in West Africa

According to WHO, the blood from Ebola survivors is now being sold on the black market This development started after it was revealed the blood of those treated for Ebola can be used to cure those infected.

A third U.S. missionary worker Dr Rick Sacra,(above)who was infected with Ebola in Liberia and flown to the U.S. for medical care was treated with blood transfusions from Dr Kent,an American who recovered from thevirus last month.The WHO is vowing to stamp out it the illicit  trade because of fears the blood contains other diseases and could backfire if not properly administered


Margaret Chan, director-general of the WHO said:
‘There is a danger that such serums could contain other infections and wouldn’t be administered properly.'
