One of the powerful storylines captured in FACING DARKNESS, is how an untested vaccine helped save the lives of Dr. Kent Brantly and Nancy Writebol in the midst of the Ebola outbreak in West Africa.

While the pandemic eventually ended, the work has continued on how best to fight the disease in the future. That’s why a recent article in the New York Times is so encouraging.

“In a scientific triumph that will change the way the world fights a terrifying killer, an experimental Ebola vaccine tested on humans in the waning days of the West African epidemic has been shown to provide 100 percent protection against the lethal disease.

“The vaccine has not yet been approved by any regulatory authority, but it is considered so effective that an emergency stockpile of 300,000 doses has already been created for use should an outbreak flare up again.”
