First, I know of OUTBREAK(Robin Cook), but who wrote THE HOT ZONE?
Second, the TV program 48 HOURS did a rather interesting report on lethal 
virus, including two strains of Ebola: Reston and Zaire, the former being 
a simian virus only(we hope). The title of the episode was THE DANGER 
ZONE and you should be able to request a transcript from them. Also, some 
places to look:
   U.S. Army Medical - Research for Infectious Disease
   Centers for Disease Control
