I had never heard of Marburg until I watched MM. At first, I thought the writers had made it up, but quickly learned that it existed IRL and really was a pretty awful hemorrhagic disease that can kill (but not always.) I've since seen signs warning about it in international airports and in certain locations in Africa, particularly Central Africa. It seems Ghana may possibly be facing an outbreak according to this article from the UN. It's factual, meant to inform, and is not alarmist: https://news.un.org/en/story/2022/07/1122242

Kind of a quirky thing, but it is really quite interesting. Hopefully they'll dodge the Marburg bullet.

Sorry I missed your topic Gotham. Yes, I’d never heard of it either until Millennium. Hope that flare up was contained, terrifying virus.
