That STD Ebola

Is getting some more clarity.  Evidently the patient had been infected, then cured – but still carried the virus in his semen.  Again, look up virus latency.

From Africa comes another bit of chiller news.  It seems a person cured from Ebola got re-infected when reunited with his family.  So having had the disease doesn’t give immunity, evidently.

But on the plus side, work to come to grips with this virus is gathering speed, with some innovation like small, portable (suitcase) labs that can do better, faster tests.

Oh, and apropos of nothing: over on FR they are now at Begathon Thread LIX!  I take it that means JR lix balls for dimes🙂.
