Obviously this could become an even worse senario than even with H5N1 avian influenza, as we have no defences that we can employ to help ourselves against this terrifying menace. It has an apparent 90% fatality rate associated to it and is a very ugly way to have to die. I found a little more background information on it on a site that I always reference to for this thread. [i][b]Date: Fri 16 Nov 2012 Source: BBC World Service, Science and Environment [edited] http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/science-environment-20341423 Canadian scientists have shown that the deadliest form of Ebolavirus could be transmitted by air between species. In experiments, they demonstrated that the virus was transmitted from pigs to monkeys without any direct contact between them. The researchers say they believe that limited airborne transmission might be contributing to the spread of the disease in some parts of Africa. They are concerned that pigs might be a natural host for the lethal infection. Details of the research were published in the journal Scientific Reports [Hana M Weingartl et al. Transmission of Ebola virus from pigs to non-human primates. Scientific Reports 2, Article number 811, doi:10.1038/srep00811; http://www.nature.com/srep/2012/121115/srep00811/full/srep00811.html]. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), the infection gets into humans through close contact with the blood, secretions, organs, and other bodily fluids from a number of species, including chimpanzees, gorillas, and forest antelope. The fruit bat has long been considered the natural reservoir of the infection. But a growing body of experimental evidence suggests that pigs, both wild and domestic, could be a hidden source of Zaire Ebolavirus, the most deadly of the Ebolaviruses. Now, researchers from the Canadian Food Inspection Agency and the country's Public Health Agency have shown that pigs infected with this form of Ebolavirus can pass the disease on to macaques without any direct contact between the species. In their experiments, the pigs carrying the virus were housed in pens with the monkeys in close proximity but separated by a wire barrier. After 8 days, some of the macaques were showing clinical signs typical of Ebolavirus [infection] and were euthanised. One possibility is that the monkeys became infected by inhaling large aerosol droplets produced from the respiratory tracts of the pigs. Pigs could act as a host and amplify Ebola-like viruses. One of the scientists involved is Dr Gary Kobinger from the National Microbiology Laboratory at the Public Health Agency of Canada. He told BBC News this was the most likely route of the infection. "What we suspect is happening is large droplets; they can stay in the air, but not long; they don't go far," he explained. "But they can be absorbed in the airway, and this is how the infection starts, and this is what we think, because we saw a lot of evidence in the lungs of the non-human primates that the virus got in that way."[/b][/i] Break... [i][b]"The reality is that they are contained, and they remain local; if it was really an airborne virus like influenza is, it would spread all over the place, and that's not happening."[/b][/i] Link here... http://www.promedmail.org/ In the left menu under the heading...

I previously engaged in several threads regarding the potentially devestating potential of H5N1.
Some readers who havent even attempted to gain any sort of education have downvoted my thread to the point that no-one got the chance to read and learn, on a topic that I have been closely monitoring for several years, ever since the World Health Organization announced their concerns for it to go pandemic.
Now the following link is showing its steady but relentless advance and in all probability its eventual final evolutionary mutation to become an airborne dissease that will readily spread throughout humanity with devistating effects.
