Quotes

"We are pleased that TKM-Ebola was available to treat Dr. Sacra," said Dr PhilPhil Smith, Director of the Med Center 's biocontainment unit.  "Although the FDA just authorized Tekmira to provide TKM-Ebola for treatment under expanded access protocols to patients with Ebola virus, there's still a very short supply."
... He dropped off some flowers Thursday morning to pay respects to Minshall and his family.   "We wanted to show that we cared and that we are praying for them."
Debbie Sacra says Rick still physically tires easily but mentally he is becoming sharper every day.  She says, "He's been able to have long conversations with several people he’s close to,” said Debbie. “He spoke with his pastor at Holden Chapel in our hometown of Holden , Mass. along with a colleague of his in Liberia , Dr JohnJohn Fankhouser. Staff members have also commented on how talkative he’s becoming.”"
