Shorter Genius: I am no epidemiology expert but I have read a book on the subject and Ebola is fucking terrifying. It burns pretty fast and is not airborne and thus unlikely to be a world killer but it could definitely devastate a city.
In other aspects of this story, can the Congo catch a fucking break? The Four Horsemen fucking love Africa. It would be nice if the international community could make those bastards take a long break.
