You are six degrees of separation away from the Ebola virus

Well that's reassuring!

The basic facts; there is no cure, the mortality rate is over 50%, and it can take up to three weeks for symptoms to appear.

That means my pal Harvard, who is off on a trekking holiday in Africa, can board a plane in the west of Africa, fly to Toronto, gather up all his friends and neighbours to show off his holiday pictures, and infect the lot of us before he even shows any symptoms!

Think I'll look at those pictures in a month or two.
