Text THE Black Death was not caused by rats passing bubonic plague bacteria but by an ebola-like virus transmitted from person to person, British scientists said yesterday. A study at Liverpool University suggests the disease that first appeared in Europe in 1347 and spread like wildfire for 300 years did not need insanitary conditions and could strike again at any time. Prof Christopher Duncan, who led the study with Dr Susan Scott, said: "Intuitively, the Black Death has all the hallmarks of a viral disease. The history books are wrong." Only one Black Death symptom, swollen glands in the armpit or groin, accords with bubonic plague. Other symptoms made bubonic plague a very unlikely cause.

Um no, you haven't been to Uganda lately I take it? You can find shanty towns and filth all through most African capitals.

I wasn"t sure if the victims were from the capital or if they had been brought there either. I figured that the people in the capital were probably better off than the others, but I didn't understand how impoverished the capitals could be as well in Africa. I'm not much of a world traveler.

Worldwide Disease Outbreak Reports and Status
I try not to post this much because some people react....oddly...to seeing real displays of just how much real ugly illness is happening every single day. For instance, Scotland appears to be having a little Anthrax issue. Certainly, not alone there though. Bird flu in two variations are alive and well and pushing hard in multiple nations and Cuba's death toll on a Cholera outbreak is approaching 200.
The Ebola outbreak isn't confirmed here yet, but it does the strange illness and the map for outbreak location in Uganda, as well as Foot and Mouth outbreak information for a different area of Uganda.
Ever feel like you were in the Men in Black scene about how there is always a death ray or some threat to life on Earth? Well...That display isn't for the meak...but it does wonders for perspective. Hope it helps! (Ebola is 4th from the bottom on the main listing)

The Ebola virus is spread through close personal contact with a person who is infected with Ebola. Often, infection (in previous outbreaks) have occurred among hospital care workers or family members who were caring for an ill or dead person infected with Ebola virus. Blood and body fluids contain large amounts of virus, thus transmission of the virus has also occurred as a result of hypodermic needles being reused in the treatment of patients.
20k packed into a stadium.. Bleeding injured athletes.... the possibilities.....
The president of Uganda is calling on people in the East African country to avoid physical contact, including handshaking and kissing, to prevent the spread of the deadly and highly contagious Ebola virus that is believed to have killed 14 people in the last few weeks. The disease has no known cure or vaccine and some strains can kill up to 90 percent of victims within days. Ugandans are so fearful of the disease that residents in Kibaale province where the outbreak was reported said that people immediately fled the hospital after hearing patients with Ebola were there.
A patient, who was admitted to Siaya District Hospital with symptoms similar to those of Ebola, has tested negative.
