From Science Blog:  “Study links Ebola outbreaks to great ape carcasses”

All recent Ebola virus outbreaks  in humans in forests between Gabon and the Republic of Congo were the result of handling infected wild animal carcasses, according to a study by the Wildlife Conservation Society (WCS) and its regional partners. Appearing in the February edition of the journal Emerging Infectious Diseases, the study found that many animal carcasses tested for Ebola between 2001 and 2003 produced positive results, and found direct links between the deadly disease in animal populations and humans.

Just wait until we get an Ebola outbreak in Lewisham thanks to an infected Baboon Fist Stew being consumed as part of a respect all cultures party…
