Ebola Virus in Pigs

Factory farms are the perfect melting pot when it comes to viruses and it seems now we have to be concerned of yet another virus in pigs that could affect humans. Researchers have found various strains of the Ebola virus in pigs in the Philippines and are concerned these viruses might get in the human food chain. Ebola was also detected in farm workers who tend to the infected pigs, which means it’s likely that the virus had been transmitted from swine to humans, and vice versa. The US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention say that this current strain of the virus is not of the same variety as the one which caused outbreaks of hemorrhagic fever in the early 90’s, and at present there is no serious cause for concern.
