I would just like to correct an error you made in today’s commentary. Ebola is not in the coronavirus family. Ebola is an RNA filovirus virus in the family Filoviridae, their natural carrier hosts in the animal world are African fruit bats.

Thank you for this informative email which certainly helped improve my knowledge. It is worth noting however, that Gilead is testing the drugs it developed against Ebola on the coronavirus.
