The Ebola and Marburg viruses are extremely lethal viruses that have placed repugnant thoughts on the
minds of many people that have any background knowledge on this field of viral infections. Where does it
come from? Where does it hide? What could it do to me? As these questions burn holes in the minds of

pg.63-64 - Project Ebola).
A large, shy man by the name of Gene Johnson was the first pioneer to venture out to find the
roots of the Ebola and Marburg viruses.
Gene spent many years in Central Africa looking for these
viruses. After digging up virtually every piece of land in Central Africa, Gene Johnson wound up without
a single case or report of a virus. A man by the name of Charles Monet and a young boy referred to in this
