Fact four: The particular therapy was meant to slow the progress of Ebola to give the body time to respond, not cure it.

Fact five: Based on the information there is no saying if what they did had any impact on the two individuals health at all. 

Fact six: As noble as giving people highly experimental drugs over and over again just in case seems, it’s not.

I agree we need to do more since we have the resources, but saying we just popped out a cure is not true.
