 “A rule of thumb among Ebola experts is that, if you are not wearing biohazard gear, you should stand at least six feet away from an Ebola patient, as a precaution against flying droplets.” (p. 48)

“The virus is believed to be transmitted, in particular, through contact with sweat and blood, which contain high concentrations of Ebola particles.” (p. 44)

“As Ebola enters a deepening relationship with the human species, the question of how it is mutating has significance for every person on earth."  (p. 44)
