The first ever outbreak of Ebola was in 1976

Ebola is a completely different virus from Marburg, and the first Marburg outbreak was at a plant that used chimpanzee parts to test vaccines, not a nazi test lab.

Basically since chimp DNA is so similar vaccines work the same way which is why they use chimp parts. The Nazis really had nothing at all to do with Ebola.

The first ever outbreak of Ebola was in 1976, many years after the Nazis fell out of power.

Not that it didn't suck for the Africans or anything.

Symptoms in the later phases include detachment of the intestinal lining from its place, hemmorhaging from any or all orifices, liquidation of some internal organs (not from stomach acid by the way) and the mind often slows down to stopping.

Example comments:

"Hey, look, that guy just shat out his intestines in a huge gush of blood."
"Hmm. After thorough evaluation I have concluded that he has Ebola." 


There are some other rather nasty symptoms but those are the ones that come to mind.

The spread of Ebola between people occurs only by direct contact with the blood or body fluids of a person after symptoms have developed.

Body fluids that may contain ebolaviruses include saliva, mucus, vomit, feces, sweat, tears, breast milk, urine, and semen.

However, recent WHO statements say that only people who are very sick will be able to spread Ebola in saliva, and whole Ebola virus has reportedly not been transmitted through sweat; most Ebola patients spread the virus through blood, feces, and vomit.

Entry points include the nose, mouth, eyes, or open wounds, cuts and abrasions.

Contact with objects contaminated by the virus, particularly needles and syringes, may also transmit the infection.

The virus is able to survive on objects for a few hours in a dried state and can survive for a few days within body fluids.

Ebola virus may be able to persist in the semen of survivors for up to seven weeks after recovery, which could give rise to infections via sexual intercourse.

Otherwise, people who have recovered are not infectious.

The potential for widespread infections in countries with medical systems capable of observing correct medical isolation procedures is considered low.

Usually when someone has symptoms, they are sufficiently unwell that they are unable to travel without assistance.

Dead bodies remain infectious, threatening people who engage in practices ranging from traditional burial rituals to more modern processes such as embalming.

Nearly two thirds of the cases of Ebola infections in Guinea during the 2014 outbreak are believed to have been contracted via unprotected (or unsuitably protected) contact with infected corpses during certain Guinean burial rituals.

Healthcare workers treating those who are infected are at greatest risk of transmission.

The risk increases when they do not have appropriate protective clothing such as masks, gowns, gloves and eye protection, do not wear it properly, or handle contaminated clothing incorrectly.

This is particularly common in parts of Africa where the health systems function poorly and where the disease mostly occurs.

Hospital-acquired transmission has also occurred in African countries due to the reuse of needles.

Some healthcare centers caring for people with the disease do not have running water.

In the United States, spread has occurred due to inadequate isolation.

Airborne transmission has not been documented during EVD outbreaks. Transmission among rhesus monkeys via breathable 0.8–1.2 μm aerosolized droplets has been demonstrated in the laboratory. That airborne transmission does not appear to occur in humans may be due to there not being high enough levels of the virus in the lungs. Spread by water or food other than bushmeat has also not been observed,nor has spread by mosquitos or other insects.

Well, the way they make shows is, they make one show. That show's called a pilot. Then they show that show to the people who make shows, and on the strength of that one show they decide if they're going to make more shows.

Like you, I used to think the world was this great place where everybody lived by the same standards I did, then some kid with a nail showed me I was living in his world, a world where chaos rules not order, a world where righteousness is not rewarded. That's Cesar's world, and if you're not willing to play by his rules, then you're gonna have to pay the price.

You think water moves fast? You should see ice. It moves like it has a mind. Like it knows it killed the world once and got a taste for murder. After the avalanche, it took us a week to climb out. Now, I don't know exactly when we turned on each other, but I know that seven of us survived the slide... and only five made it out. Now we took an oath, that I'm breaking now. We said we'd say it was the snow that killed the other two, but it wasn't. Nature is lethal but it doesn't hold a candle to man.

You see? It's curious. Ted did figure it out - time travel. And when we get back, we gonna tell everyone. How it's possible, how it's done, what the dangers are. But then why fifty years in the future when the spacecraft encounters a black hole does the computer call it an 'unknown entry event'? Why don't they know? If they don't know, that means we never told anyone. And if we never told anyone it means we never made it back. Hence we die down here. Just as a matter of deductive logic.
