I wonder how long it will last the alive in the semen.
The isolation of EBOV from semen 40 days after the onset of illness underscores the risk of sexual transmission of the filoviruses during convalescence. Zaire EBOV has been detected in the semen of convalescent patients by virus isolation (82 days) and RT-PCR (91 days) after disease onset [5, 14]. Marburg virus has also been isolated from the semen and linked conclusively to sexual transmission 13 weeks into convalescence .

The report I posted said 7 weeks in male semen after they are healed from the disease...
A Massachusetts doctor who recovered from Ebola is again hospitalized, this time with a respiratory infection apparently unrelated to the disease he contracted as a missionary in Africa, his physician said.
UMass Memorial Medical Center in Worcester, Mass., says Richard Sacra was hospitalized Saturday in stable condition with a cough and pinkeye.
Robert Finberg, who is leading Sacra's medical team, says "it is highly unlikely" the Ebola has returned. He said Sacra will remain in isolation until doctors have confirmation he is not infected with the virus, probably in a day or two.
Sacra returned home Sept. 25 after weeks of treatment at a Nebraska hospital.
