The Ebola virus has caused fear of outbreaks in the US amid its devastation of Africa. Turns out, the virus is a totally different, potentially more lethal strain than any other Ebola virus seen before, according to noted infectious disease experts. Virologists are saying that the current Ebola strain appears to be far worse than any previous strain and it is not one that scientists have seen previously. So where did it come from?
Dr. Michael Osterholm, the head of the Center for Infection Disease Research and Policy at the University of Minnesota, reported that top Ebola virologist Gary Kobinger said that “the current Ebola strain appears to be far worse than any previous strain” and that “the current strain could more easily be spread through aerosols than those previously identified.”
