I've been doing a little reading on Ebola as well, and came across a couple of interesting stories.

I don't put a lot of weight into what I read on the internet, but with two hospital workers who were taking at least some level of precautions I was interested in any type of Ebola transmission experiments that had been done.

I came across this link:

http://www.the-scientist.com/?articles.view/articleNo/33277/title/Ebola-from-Pigs-to-Monkeys/

It seems to indicate that it is possible to contract this bug without direct contact. This article led me to another here:

The Reston Ebola Outbreak

This article takes it one step farther, and seems to indicate that it's possible for it to spread between rooms via ventilation.

From what I can tell, these version of the Virus are different strains that what we are seeing now, but it shows how aggressive this family of viruses can be, even in a BSL-4 containment facility.

After a few weeks offline, I popped over to the original Ebola thread to express how glad I am that ETS members are so level-headed, lets-keep-it-that-way, when lo and behold, there's already a thread saying the same thing.

You guys are just too awesome.
