I enjoyed the first part of the book even though its distugustingly gross the detail kept me eageraly wanting to know and find out more. I learned that the Marburg virus caused Charles Monet to shut his entire body down. I don’t understand how he could function when his internal organs were not working. Taking from what I have read I have learned that Filovirus has three different viruses within the family, there are two seperate Ebola viruses 1)Vaire and 2)Sudan, and then the Marburg virus. I thought there was only one Ebola virus not two. After reading part one of the Hot Zone I question on how the virus destoryes the body the way it does and how the virus attempts to turn the host into itsself.
