And check this 3 min video from the FT reporter Bernadeta Dadonaite – it’s very good:
The stats for this disease are insane. In the first oubreak in 1976, 88% of patients died. In the outbreak in the east of DRC last year 66% of patients died. And I’ve not heard anyone suggest it is ever asymptomatic. That’s a properly scary disease.
I can’t find the press briefing from which the story is drawn, so perhaps it wasn’t accompanied by a written statement.
