I don't often allow myself to buy into fear and conspiracy theories, but I must admit that I am feeling quite horrified about the spread of Ebola virus.
There was a stage when it seemed like Aids was going to kill off most of the African population, but then that seemed to be brought under control..
Now, I get the feeling that a more 'efficient' killer virus has been introduced.. Ebola spreads more easily and kills 50% of its victims!
I'm due to go to S Africa in 10 weeks time, for a few weeks holiday, and I'm (selfishly) hoping that I get in and out before the first case of Ebola reaches there..! (%$+@, of course I hope it NEVER reaches there, but with the high traffic between Nigeria and South Africa, it would seem all too likely.)
So, is Ebola just another natural virus, or is it an artificially introduced one...? And if so, why?
