Surely the CDC is aware that there is not a sign or symptom of Ebola, including its haemorrhagic tendencies, that cannot be found in acute disseminated miliary (blood-borne) tuberculosis, once called "galloping
consumption"—the single most feared form of the disease ever. Most likely it is also aware that such tuberculosis has its own virus-like forms, some of which can simulate the Ebola virus. Such viral TB is generally acknowledged to be TB's preferred form—as a survival strategy to storm any inclement conditions in which the microbe might find itself. 9 Then why did the CDC not mention tuberculosis, by name, in its short list of possibilities that could cause Ebola-like symptoms? If such oversight stopped there it would be unremarkable, but it seems to have been carried over in the very design of the most recent diagnostic tests issued to detect Ebola.
