Liar-in-Chief Barack Obama claims Ebola can not be spread through casual contact... (2012 study proved different)

Barack Obama tapes message to people of West Africa, tells them Ebola can not be spread through casual contact.

A 2012 study found transmission from infected pigs to monkeys without direct contact.
Ebola viruses (EBOV) cause often fatal hemorrhagic fever in several species of simian primates including human. While fruit bats are considered natural reservoir, involvement of other species in EBOV transmission is unclear. In 2009, Reston-EBOV was the first EBOV detected in swine with indicated transmission to humans. In-contact transmission of Zaire-EBOV (ZEBOV) between pigs was demonstrated experimentally. Here we show ZEBOV transmission from pigs to cynomolgus macaques without direct contact. Read more here...
