science report I'm doing.   Any help would be much appreciated.

Q. Is Ebola definitely a new disease, or is it a disease that has mutated in
to it’s current form?

Q: Does Ebola have the potential to become airborne?

Q: Why does Ebola Reston only kill animals and not humans?

Q: Why can’t our immune system fight off the disease?

Q: Is it true that Ebola could have been responsible for the Great Plaque in
425 B.C.?

Q: What are the chances of Ebola reaching the USA?

Q: Is it true that some people in Africa have antibodies to help fight off
the Ebola virus?

Q: Could it be possible that Ebola once was a harmless virus that mutated
into this very harmful virus?

Q: What is most likely the host or cause of Ebola?
