O.k. wait... Ebola is transmitted via body fluids, right?
So, the liklihood of Ebola infection becoming pandemic in Canada would be fairly low? Isolated groups, perhaps, (those sharing needles, etc.) but it would seem otherwise, quite low risk...
I doubt very much ascorbic acid will put a dent in the old Ebola virus
Simple basic infection control practices are the way to go.
What is the the single best thing to do?
Wash your hands!)
I'll see if I can find some of the reports by the field researchers. It's very interesting reading & it also shows how you can be perfectly safe by taking very basic measures.

It's a fascinating & scary area.
Have you read the book "The Coming Plague" by Laurie Garrett?
Whilst it's "over the top" & I've discussed it with "heavy hitters" in this field who agree it's "over the top", it's very well written & it really makes you think.
I really enjoyed reading about the investigative work & the field case studies she wrote about.
It's also a great entree into this very complex area.
