According to recent research from an international research team, "In March 2005, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) investigated a large hemorrhagic fever (HF) outbreak in Uige Province in northern Angola, West Africa. In total, 15 initial specimens were sent to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention for testing for viruses associated with viral HFs known to be present in West Africa, including Ebola virus. Marburg virus was also included despite the fact that the origins of all earlier outbreaks were linked directly to East Africa."
