Ebola

The New Yorker just released a really great, in depth article on Ebola describing how the outbreak began and what scientist are doing to monitor how Ebola is changing as it infects more and more people.  Spoiler alert….scientists do not think this virus will become airborne!  They also cite this recent Science article documenting these changes in Ebola.  Several of the authors have since died from the infection while caring for patients in Africa.
