Ebola is one of 18 viruses that cause viral hemorrhagic fever (VHF) in humans and other primates. Sporadic Ebola virus infections occur naturally in parts of Africa. Ebola could serve as an effective bioweapon since it is stable, lethal, transmittable from person to person, and has no treatment; however, the ability to weaponize Ebola has not been demonstrated.
