These seventeen researchers have concluded that a fruit bat was the source of the current Ebola outbreak. From that fruit bat it reached a toddler and
thus spread. Conspiracy-wise, natural? Or was this planted in the bats?
I thought it was strange that Ebola broke out and they claim it's carried by bats. Could this be in connection to the White Nose Syndrome, the fungus
that is currently hitting bat populations hard in the US? Maybe they're being killed off in case something like this happens? Thought it was strange.
So what you are asking is if a common source of Ebola is being made up? No.. bats and other animals often carry it.. and humans get it as a result.
How do you honestly expect someone here to know if it's just a coverup? I personally suspect it's true. Diseases actually DO exist in the world,
and spread naturally. Even the nasty ones.
In the US were are generally to picky to eat bush meat. However, there are many caverns that have spladunkers (I love that word) that would have at
the very least had contact with possibly infect bats if it were white nose syndrome that was causing this virus.
The announcement of the bats being the original carrier of the disease is most likely a reminder as yo how Ebola could have multiple epicenters. Bats
travel very far and then return to their original dwelling.
As fleabit says, "Diseases actually DO exist in the world, and spread naturally. Even the nasty ones." Diseases also mutate and evolve in the wild -
especially in response to environmental change like deforestation and climate change. ....The (Zaire) Ebola in West African is different in several
respects to past ZEBOV outbreaks - for starters, it did NOT "burn itself out quickly," and at 47%, has a much lower fatality rate than other ZEBOV
outbreaks. At least one study shows this is a new subclade, but some 'experts' insist this is the same old ZEBOV that previously burnt out before
spreading and killed 90% of those infected. So - who knows? We need the full genetic analysis, honestly presented. Hands up if you think we'll get
