Dr. Musoke's tests showed that he suffered from Marburg.  Marburg is an African virus that was first identified at a vaccine factory in Marburg, Germany in 1967. After an initial outbreak in a shipment of monkeys that arrived at the factory, the virus soon spread to the human population, killing one in four of those infected. It was later discovered that the infected monkeys had undergone only a basic visual inspection prior to being exported.
