You know, Mother Nature used to have a way with how things worked or didn't work in the natural world. Not so much anymore. Say it's 100 years ago. You caught the Ebola virus somewhere in Uganda. As you WALKED to the capital city of Kampala, you would collapse and die on the side of the road. Anyone in close contact with either you alive or you as a corpse, would likely also be infected and die. So far, only a local human tragedy. Now, you may ride the bus into Kampala, get on a flight to Nairobi, Kenya, and be in London before you even begin to exhibit symptoms. Hell, let's make it NYC, you collapse and die at LaGuardia! So far, only an international medical tragedy of unknown scope and proportions! Think how many people came into contact with you at Kampala, Nairobi, London and New York, and went off on their separate (and infectious) ways! The strain [i]Ebola Reston[/i], named for the city in Virginia where it infected monkeys in a research clinic. More than 147 persons exposed to the [b]air-borne[/b] strain, but no human casualties. Two workers did develop antibodies to the Ebola Reston strain, however. Big news is that it was [b]air-borne[/b] unlike the [i]Eboloa Zaire[/i] strain. If there ever comes a time when a strain arives with the mortality rate of the [i]Zaire[/i] strain, and the air-borne nature of the [i]Reston[/i] strain, better watch out!
