Ebola has mutated. Asymptomatic carriers.

From the BBC, January 29, 2015

Scientists tracking the Ebola outbreak in Guinea say the virus has mutated.

Researchers at the Institut Pasteur in France, which first identified the outbreak last March, are investigating whether it could have become more contagious.

“We’ve now seen several cases that don’t have any symptoms at all, asymptomatic cases,” said Anavaj Sakuntabhai.

“These people may be the people who can spread the virus better, but we still don’t know that yet. A virus can change itself to less deadly, but more contagious and that’s something we are afraid of.”

  1. Hi, monotreme, the site PFI Forum will be closed January 28th when the hosting expires. Singtome will become a private blog. We are retired and there is no company to send donations for funding. If you want the data, just let me know.
