Re: Buff Bacteria

Buff bacteria now is it? This little bad boy is a tad nasty. Ebola hemorrhagic fever is caused by several Ebola viruses. There is understandably a large amount of information on this subject and for a quick Q & A on the subject go to here . To give a brief rundown of this paticular nasty here's a passage taken from the article:

"People infected with Ebola virus have sudden fever, weakness, muscle pain, headache, and sore throat, followed by vomiting, diarrhea, rash, limited kidney and liver functions, and both internal and external bleeding. Death rates range from 50% to 90%"
