While all of the news reporters and scientists go on about the changing
nature of Ebola Reston and other "Reston-like" Ebola, it is interesting
to note that the monkeys in Alice Texas came from the Phillipines.
Didn't the original Reston monkeys come from Africa? If this is true
then I think that we may have more of a problem than we realize.
Then again, if the Reston monkeys also came from the Phillipines, my
argument is full of hot air. But consider this, all of the other Ebola
organisms have come from Africa (Zaire, Tai, Marburg) what is this coming
out of the Phillipines? How did it get there in the first place? How
similar is it to the African strains? Is Ebola in other rain forests
that we don't know?
