The death of a second victim treated at the same facility, was reported later on Sunday. Facing the threat of two different viruses has left already-weary doctors fearful for what’s to come.

Whats even more ironic is thay the SARS-CoV-2 virus that is behind the coronavirus pandemic, shares some of the same genetic components as Ebola. The Ebolavirus is actually one of the fusion components for the SARS-CoV-2 virus, alongside with HIV and SARS viruses.
