One of three African doctors infected with Ebola and treated with the experimental drug ZMapp has died in Monrovia, Liberia’s Information Minister, Lewis Brown, said on Monday.
Asked to confirm the death of doctor Abraham Borbor, Brown said: “That is correct. He died yesterday.”
Reuters reports that the hemorrhagic fever has killed at least 1,427 people, mostly in Sierra Leone, Liberia and neighbouring Guinea, the deadliest outbreak of the disease to date.
The disease has also claimed the lives of five people in Nigeria.
