Wow this kinda scary. Hope some whack job doesn't try to recreate this thing and spread it. Plus there is the mutation factor. Some how the new medical counter measures and the global health surveillance system just does not really reassure me on how fast this thing can spread and how fast it can kill once lose.

When hundreds of thousands die of plague, one person’s infection is not news. But it is today.
