-1 Deaths[edit]

I assume that -1 deaths may mean someone was cured but I'm not 100% sure. The weekly deaths (where the -1 is found) should include a subtext that explains what -1 means. - unsigned

Early Outbreaks[edit]

How does 13 primary and 6 secondary cases add up to 31 afflicted? - unsigned

-1 Deaths[edit]

All thos numbers in that collumn are comparing the current amount of deaths to the amount of the previous week, for example if there were 347 deaths last week and 346 this week then it would go down 1 death so it would be -1. All this is doing is showing you if the deaths are increasing or decreasing.Ŗóń

virus?[edit]

there is no such thing like a virus.


Why does the article state 23% fatality rate?

The references indicate more like 80-90%. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by 192.16.134.68 (talk) 10:24, August 22, 2007 (UTC)

Belgrade[edit]

"and the then Yugoslavian city of Belgrade."

this fraction of a sentence is nonsense, as long there is no context to Belgrade somewhere else. I think it is part of a sentence forgotten to erase. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 93.221.224.114 (talk) 13:50, 18 October 2010 (UTC)

Talk page redirect[edit]

Why does Talk:Marburg virus redirect here, when the article Marburg virus does not redirect to Marburg virus disease? -- saberwyn 10:04, 14 January 2012 (UTC)

Weaponization section[edit]

What is "offensive times" that is mentioned twice in that section? Is that some phase of the Cold War or some other time?Wzrd1 (talk) 00:20, 1 July 2012 (UTC)

Citation overkill in places[edit]

In several places in this article there are multiple citations back-to-back where such duplication is surely quite unnecessary. If no single source can be found which summarises all these other sources, then ideally these WP:REFBOMBs need to be stripped down to no more than the best / most comprehensive three(ish) sources. It seems, in places, to be quite inconceivable that so many sources are required to cover such a small amount of information! Pesky (talk) 04:24, 4 August 2012 (UTC)
