Airborne Ebola Virus cannot be Ruled out.
JAMA 2002 MAY 8 ARTICLE STATES EBOLA'S AIRBORNE VIRAL TRANSMISSION CAN NOT BE RULED OUT- 26 WORLD EXPERTS
HISTORY AND POTENTIAL AS BIOLOGICAL WEAPONS
Direct contact with infected blood and bodily fluids has accounted for the majority of person-to-person transmis- sion of filoviruses and arenaviruses...
Airborne transmission of HFVs appears to be a rare event but cannot be conclusively excluded. Given the inability to completely exclude this potential, the lack of preventive vaccines, and, in the case of filoviruses, the lack of effective drug therapy, we recommend that in addition to VHF-specific barrier pre- cautions, airborne precautions also be instituted.
