At the annual meeting of the American Society for Microbiology in D.C. 
last month, Laurie Garrett participated in a conference call from Zaire 
where she is/was covering the Ebola outbreak.  At that time she said that 
after approx. four passages through humans that the virus seemed to be 
burning itself out. It seems that the virus became less and less virulent 
with each new generation.  At the time of the call, new cases were down 
dramatically.  Shortly after this, media coverage fell off, too.
