The highly virulent Ebola virus has seen a few major outbreaks since it first appeared in 1976 — with the worst epidemic occurring in 2014. How does the virus spread, and what exactly does it do to the body? Alex Gendler details what Ebola is and why it’s so hard to study.

Watching this in the middle of a pandemic! If such deadly diseases as ebola and coronavirus couldn't discourage ppl from eating bats I don't know what would! Right now bat scientists are busy observing humans and if this corona nightmare also proves to be ineffective God knows what their next move will be!
Ps. Plzzzzz stop eating batssssss!!

is there a way to delay or weaken the immune response? from what im seeing on most of these videos, sure people get hurt from the virus but most often it's the immune system overreacting that kills the host
