Sup Travellers?! Peter Hubbard deliberately injected himself with the Ebola virus and it's very hard to tell if his action is genius or FRIGGIN INSANE!!!

According to the Mirror UK Hubbard injected himself with the virus in a bid to fight the deadly disease. He said that he hopes the small risk he is taking could help create a vaccine to prevent further outbreaks of the disease, which has claimed thousands of lives in west Africa.

Mr Hubbard, 35, is one of 20 people taking part in clinical trials for a vaccine at the National Institutes of Health (NIH) in the United States.

Despite being injected with parts of the virus on September 9, Mr Hubbard revealed that he felt so healthy he has even taken part in a MARATHON. 

He said: "I feel great, yeah. In fact, I couldn't tell where the injection site was thirty minutes after it. I ran a marathon on Sunday. I'm alive and kicking."

Being injected with a weakened or dead version of the Ebola virus is nothing really special since vaccines existed for years. It's a good idea and I really do commend Hubbard for his bravery but It's amazing that something like this is only now being tested. Anyway, my name is Trinikid and you've just been informed.
