What is the name of the deceased? 

Could he/she have been a suicide biological weapon?

THAT'S where you start.

 I think the worst time to have a heart attack would be during a game of charades.

I remember a book called "Hot Zone" about Ebola and the Army doctors who responded to these threats.  There was a facility in Virginia maybe 30 years ago about, Reston maybe.

  • Your what hurts??
I'm amazed anyone is allowing flights in from Sierra Leone for exactly this reason.  There is a 3 week incubation period for ebola, long enough to get a hot spot going in any number of immigrant communities all over the place.

Gonna be a long hot summer....

Just a reminder - this is from the Mirror. Piers Morgans old paper. They specialize in sensationalist fear  mongering and the fine journalistic art of "making shit up" so should rarely be treated as an accurate source of news.

Passengers, especially elderly ones, die all the time in flight or after a flight. It is a sad aspect of the wife's job - she's lost a few. Saved a few too.

The person tested negative for Ebola.

Sounds like it was an elderly person who simply dropped dead, probably a heart attack, and wasn't displaying any symptoms of Ebola.
