    Very interesting. Could it be that Ebola is a self-limiting disease?

    It is not that ebola is a "self limiting" disease but that people basically have immune systems that, for whatever reason, are very good at fighting it - so good that they don't even get symptoms of the disease. They HAD to be infected at some point in time and their body fought it off - essentially a similar idea to an innoculation but this with the real thing.

    Very cool!
