Scientists say the First victim of Ebola Used to Play with Bats

This team of scientists investigating mentioned the investigated information in e-MB and the Molecular Medicine journal. Malinda is a village surrounded by Guinea’s forests where these animals exist in large quantities. Scientists believe that the two year old boy Ameel caught the virus from there.
