In Uganda. The most deadly outbreak of Ebola hemorrhagic fever since discovery of the Ebola virus occurred in 2000, killing 224 people. As of right now it's at least 16 deaths. Terrifying disease.

It's just lucky for us that the virus can't be transmitted via the airborne route. Imagine a flu virus with no vaccine that kills 25-90% of infected. There's always been talk about Ebola as a biological weapon, but really it's not a very good candidate virus because of it's transmission.

Yeah, damned nasty bug that one.It's a systemic one that attacks everything in a body except bone tissue and skeletal muscle tissue. Basically that means our organs, connective tissues, etc. are toast and anything holding your organs in their normal places is gone. To make matters worse, it makes blood clot like crazy so your body doesn't get the oxygen it needs and any blood that is still fluid leaks from pores and other openings. If you don't croak from exsanguination, you croak from renal failure or just plain shock trauma.
