Gabon outbreak

  Radio news just reported an outbreak of a hot virus in Gabon, which 
lies on the West Coast of Africa between Angola and Camroon. The news
reported ebola-like symptoms, with 15 known dead and a WHO team enroute.

  The southern edge of Gabon touches Kinsasha and Kinsasha Highway (the 
so-called AIDS Highway). Plotting this latest outbreak reinforces the 
impression of a general range of infection that has slowly migrated 
west from the Mount Elgon/Lake Victoria Region through the Congo 
rainforest to the coastal regions.
