The New York Times reports that a Russian scientist working in a former Soviet biological weapons facility in Siberia died after accidentally sticking herself with a needle laced with Ebola. There is no vaccine or treatment for the Ebola virus.
According to the Times:
It is errie that the scientist was killed by the Ebola virus about the same time an Ebola-like outbreak occurred in Sudan.
Scientists and officials said the accident had raised concerns about safety and secrecy at the State Research Center of Virology and Biotechnology, known as Vector, which in Soviet times specialized in turning deadly viruses into biological weapons.

An American scientist was involved in a similar accident with ebola at the Army's leading biodefense lab at Fort Detrick, Md., several months ago. But she did not contract the disease.
