More viral idiocies

Marburg Virus

These guys have once again amazed me with their denial and pseudoscience. The bizarrely infectious viral hemorrhagic fever of Marburg virus has sprung up in Angola, killing around 215 people (including at least 9 doctors and nurses who were treating the patients) as of my last ProMed update this morning.

These guys are blaming it on sanitation, vaccination reactions and poor food.

I very nearly posted a prediction here that they would make this kind of monumental error, but didn't honestly think they were that stupid. Apparently I was wrong. What's more frightening is the clearly unqualified people offering "expert" opinions on virology who clearly don't have a clue....not exactly the best source for your HIV/AIDS educational material.
