The Ebola virus may be learning to fly (this is not a good thing)11/18/2012
Our terrifying little Ebola virus is growing up so fast! It seems like just yesterday it was only able to infect people with its vile death brew via direct contact with bodily fluids from an infected animal or person. But looks like it's becoming a grown-up or — uh, something — scientists now tell us it's learning to fly! Awww; so cute, growing its wings and all. Anyway, according to a November 15 study published online in Scientific Reports, "piglets infected with Ebola passed the virus to macaques housed in the same room even though the animals never touched." Yikes. This is not good news for humankind. Everyone, stock up on tissues; it just might be fatal hemorrhagic fever season soon. [Source]
