One of the chief concerns about the Ebola virus is that, someday, it could be turned into a deadly bioweapon and used to kill tens of millions of people around the world.

So far — at least publicly — no country has admitted to having successfully “weaponized” the virus, even though bioweapons have been used for centuries and modern governments (and terrorist groups) are still believed to be developing them.

That said, the virus doesn’t have to be “weaponized” per se, in order to be utilized as a true “bioweapon.” What happens if, say, samples of tainted blood were to turn up missing – perhaps through theft — and spread through direct contact to unsuspecting victims?

According to The Canadian Press (CP), blood samples believed to be infected with the deadly virus were stolen recently by bandits during a highway robbery when they stopped a taxi in the Ebola-ridden West African country of Guinea.

As the CP reported, officials are attempting to retrieve the potential bioweapon:

Authorities publicly appealed on national radio Friday to the unidentified robbers to hand over the samples that were stolen from the taxi during its 265-kilometre (165-mile) trek on winding rural roads from the central Kankan prefecture to a test site in southern Gueckedou.
