“It’s the single greatest concern I’ve ever had…”

A professor with more than 40 years of public health experience warns that the Ebola virus, currently only contractible through direct contact with bodily fluids, could soon be transmissible through the air.

Dr. Michael Osterholm, director of the Center for Infectious Disease Research and Policy at the University of Minnesota, told CNN that, “It’s the single greatest concern I’ve ever had in my 40-year public health career.”

In an editorial for The New York Times, Osterholm warns that the Ebola virus could mutate and become an airborne disease.

“Viruses like Ebola are notoriously sloppy in replicating, meaning the virus entering one person may be genetically different from the virus entering the next. The current Ebola virus’s hyper-evolution is unprecedented; there has been more human-to-human transmission in the past four months than most likely occurred in the last 500 to 1000 years.”
