...if I were to go to the desert, mountains, Jungles of the Amazon or some Ancient place like Tikal or Michu Pichu, would it be safe?
....Send 3,000 Troops to contain it when only the above total cases are reported seems a bit vast. There must be more cases IMO.
Ebola Virus 'Rapidly Mutating' as Research Finds Almost 400 Mutations
….The researchers fear the mutation rate will only be hampering the development of treatment including future vaccines.
Genomic surveillance elucidates Ebola virus origin and transmission during the 2014 outbreak
....We observed a rapid accumulation of interhost and intrahost genetic variation, allowing us to characterize patterns of viral transmission over the initial weeks of the epidemic. This West African variant likely diverged from Middle African lineages ~2004, crossed from Guinea to Sierra Leone in May 2014, and has exhibited sustained human-to-human transmission subsequently, with no evidence of additional zoonotic sources. Since many of the mutations alter protein sequences and other biologically meaningful targets, they should be monitored for impact on diagnostics, vaccines, and therapies critical to outbreak response.

700 new cases of Ebola have just been reported in one week. If I remember correctly that is the largest single week increase since the outbreak began. With the number of new cases growing faster each week I think the signs are clear that containment is no longer an option. And with the number of mutations growing equally fast the jump to airborne would seem imminent. This really is looking bad...
