Aerosol is different to airborne.
Bit difficult to discuss this topic seriously when you don't understand the difference between the two.

THE epidemics in the US are LUNG based viral infections. Ebola DIES in sunlight.
Hard to be airborne that way.
-small article cut for copy write size.
While scientists knew that small particles called aerosols represent possible routes of disease spread, they thought that cases almost never arise that way.
"I see the reasons to dampen down public fears," Russell said. "But scientifically, we're in the middle of the first experiment of multiple, serial passages of Ebola virus in man.... God knows what this virus is going to look like. I don't." www.abovetopsecret.com...

I agree... here is an article I was just reading a moment ago and this one is very frightening:
It's written by Hodges from Thecommonsenseshow.com website; The title of the article is:
"Ebola Patients & Exposed Persons to be Sent to Death Camps According to HHS Documents"
Here is a link to that article:

USAMRIID says it can go air borne. They study in biolevel safety 4 labs. Guess they would know. Also they left it out on a counter on purpose in the lab to see how long it took the fluorescent lights to kill it. It took several weeks. I would suggest reading The Hot Zone by Richard Preston. There is a lot of info on Ebola and what it can and can not do.
The Hot Zone: A Terrifying True Story is a best-selling 1994 non-fiction thriller by Richard Preston about the origins and incidents involving viral hemorrhagic fevers, particularly ebolaviruses and marburgviruses. The basis of the book was Preston's 1992 New Yorker article "Crisis in the Hot Zone". link
