Hmmm.... Ebola? Something related?
In that vein, I saw a report on Discovery Channel a couple of years ago about a mobilization of USAAMRID to Brazil...
Seems that Brazilian SpecFor members were undergoing a jungle survival course. A 6 man team was dropped off in middle of the jungle for 14 days with
not much more than a knife each, to learn how to stay alive by themselves.
One of them caught a couple of monkeys, and they had dinner... a few days later, they signaled for an emergency medical evacuation several days early.
By the time the evac helo showed up, 1 member was dead, and 3 others were severely ill. I believe all of them ended up dead by the time USAAMRID
The symptoms sounded exactly like Ebola (severe body hemmorhaging), but Ebola is from Africa.... wonder how it showed up in South America???
