Marburg is a recently described lethal virus that primarily attacks the respiratory system. According to the BBC, the disease is highly contagious and was originally discovered in Guinea when one person exhibited symptoms consistent with Marburg virus.

Once ingested, it has been claimed that the person has breathing issues and has difficulty breathing. The disease exhibits similar symptoms to Ebola, which killed hundreds in West Africa.

One person has been reported to have contracted Marburg virus and died shortly after infection.

According to the World Health Organization, several diseases are frequently transmitted via fruit bats.
