Chinese company to test ebola drug in Africa

(Vatican Radio) A Chinese pharmaceutical company with ties to the military has sent an experimental drug to Chinese aid workers who are battling against the spread of the Ebola virus in Africa. The Sihuan Pharmaceutical Holdings Group is planning clinical trials there to combat the disease. Sihuan has supplied several thousand doses of its drug JK-05 to the region, where more than 4 thousand people have already succumbed to the sickness in the worst outbreak on record. Governments and drug-makers from all over the world have been racing to find a treatment for the outbreak, which has spread as far as the United States and Europe.
