Scientists and officials said the accident had raised concerns about safety and secrecy at the State Research Center of Virology and Biotechnology, known as Vector, which in Soviet times specialized in turning deadly viruses into biological weapons. Vector has been a leading recipient of aid in an American program to help former Soviet scientists and labs convert to peaceful research.
Although the accident occurred May 5, Vector did not report it to the World Health Organization until last week. Scientists said that although Vector had isolated the scientist to contain any potential spread of the disease and there was no requirement that accidents involving ebola be reported, the delay meant that scientists at the health agency could not provide prompt advice on treatment that might have saved her life.

Wow the last part of your presentation is scary.I never thought of it. That HIV patients who get the flu might actually mutate the flue virus. It would be a win win situation for the club of Rome to depopulate the earth without people pointing the finger at them q and that's why public health is all about recommending homosexuality to increase and sustain hiv to become permenant ie pandemic while they say no we just record mmend homosexual to prevent new biths. they're all about killing us. shouldn't we?

There are two bad news here.
The first we don't have herd immunity here but Africa do because it's native to it.
The second bad is here is great human movement and hub of travel to any small nitch in the world.
The third bad is why they brought the virus here
It was in the science section of the Detroit News or the Free Press (they were separate newspapers then). The article was titled, "Killer Cell" and had a drawing of a round virus looking "cell". The article described a biological weapon developed by the U.S. military to disrupt the human immune system by attacking the "killer" T-Cell. I remember the article very clearly and have a friend that showed me the article that would remember it.
Boy, would I'll like to see that article again as well. In order to find it, I imagine that I would need to go to the Newspaper's archives and search through microfilm. After thinking more about the date, I would have to search through two newspapers during the summers of 1978, 1979 and 1980. I have a feeling that unless I find a physical newspaper with article, it will be "lost" or have never existed. I remember well that in 1981 the disease was called something else then in 1982 it was named A.I.D.S. and everyone was worried about getting stoned and having unprotected sex. So having moved to that place in 78, where I read the article, and having knowledge of A.I.D.S. by 1981, I'm supposing the article came out in the summer of the intervening years.
