It was this on my mind when I brought up Dessie Quinn a few days ago. Okay so Quinn had malaria. Now can we NOT rule out false negatives going around?

If negatives were false there would be suspect (and subsequently confirmed) Ebola clusters reported in US.

I know. But that was then, this is now. And that was there, this is "here"... those sequences better be made available soon.

In fact, re-reading Peter Piot's latest interview, he may have been spot on regarding a longer (softer?nurse in Spain has minor symptoms) incubation and better (from the virus' point of view...) spread.

Cases increasing at steady rate. No evidence for "mutations" then or now.
Cases still returned to neighborhoods because no beds available, just like 19F who infected Thomas Eric Duncan.
NOTHING has changed other than the hysteria level.

Minor cases are due to more surveillance.
