Ebola In Virginia - 25 Years Ago

In October 1989, the Reston Primate Quarantine Unit, located near Reston, Virginia, received a shipment of 100 monkeys from the Philippines.  By the end of the month, 29 of them were dead.  The cause of death was said at first to be "simian hemorrhagic fever", but electron microscope tests indicated that they died from the Ebola Zaire, the deadliest strain of Ebola.

To find out what happened, read the story at Canada Free Press.
