Marley Horne says:

This virus will not wipe out every human on earth even if it does infect all the country's which will probably happen some people will still live! Better get your hopes up that U r one of the invincibles that doesn't die from ebola!

And it's the Africans fault they are eating bush meat the ones that didn't listen to the president R just COMPLETE BITCHES! That virus most probably would kill them and millions of other people who were good and listened to the good president i bless all those who listened to the president and are infected with Ebola. 😭

Anyways we R at the moment completely defenceless,the 1000mph car will probably won't get them chance to go to Africa because those idiotic bitches who didn't listen! The UK are working on a car that goes 1000mph WOOOOOOO!

Move to the UK so far what I've been told that they R cancelling flights from infected places to be safe! 😄
I just hope I don't die I am not even a teenager yet so I don't know about lots of stuff I'm 10 going onto 11 I freaked out this morning because of Ebola spreading!

Dennis Donovan says:

Not much to go on here as far as real insightful information. Why not try to more fully explain the how/why of the specific viral attack on the endothelial lining which may lead to some "hopeful" commentary on developing a vaccine.

As has been commented on before – A lot of commercial for so little information…
