this shit is fucking potentially frightening as fuck.
did some kind of fucked up horizontal gene transfer happened between something like herpesviruses and ebola in its natural host.
i was under the impression ebola and allmost all haemoraghic fevers are not lysogenic plus structurally incompatible, one is ssDna the other is Rna
unless the virions stay in some kind of reservoir in the body such as the liver/speen/lymph nodes and pop up again under immunostress?
or maybe the virus has mutated to become lysogenic, if so we could be potentially fucked if previous infectees become spontaniouslly infectious with ebola.
i have no idea how this is even possible.
i know ebola likes collegen, which is why people who have it become leaky and lose cellular integrity especiously in the orifices and that its mechanism of attack is receptors on the immune cells, may be lymphocytes...
curiously hiv hides in the immune system too, in a mechanically different way. where as ebola seems to outright attach to and attack the immune system right off the bat.
even scarier if this is a bioweapon is the idea that this could have a chemical operon incorporated into the dna and when the chemical trigger is introduced into the water or food supply those with the dormant virus suddenly become infectious, potentially thousands at once if they are initially asymptomatic carriers.
