From the text:

I had sealed the document in an envelope and hidden it in my backpack. It ran for three pages, typewritten, single spaced, describing the signs and symptoms of a filovirus infection in a human being, as well as possible experimental treatments that might arrest the terminal meltdown. I had not told my friends about this envelope, but I planned to give it to them if I came down with a headache.
