Rehydration key to tackling Ebola
A doctor, who survived Ebola in Nigeria, has credited plenty of water and her own determination.
The Financial Times reported the story on 14th October, saying: “Her experience is consistent with other survivors of the disease in Nigeria – all of whom engaged in an endurance test of rehydration as soon as they were diagnosed, drinking up to five litres of a solution of water combined with rehydration salts each day.”
Another doctor, who has examined multiple Ebola patients, backed up the case for rehydration. “With Ebola, things multiply – they don’t add up.” If you miss a day of water, you have to make up for it the next day with twice as much.
