(Covers information from the S.D. Perry novels)

Marburg virus is a hemorrhagic fever virus in the family Filovidae, related to the Ebola virus.

History

In the mid 1980s, Dr. Nicolas Griffith, previously dismissed from institutes for unethical research into drug-induced behavior modification, infected several lab assistants in his Washington lab. Tasked with engineering a vaccine and treating themselves in a short timespan, they were deliberately misled about the exact virus they were to be infected with, being told it was a Cold virus strain. The lab assistants failed to treat themselves in the allotted time, succumbing to brain damage and massive hemorrhaging. Griffith abandoned the lab upon the failure and it was some days before the authorities found the bodies following reports of a bad smell.[1]
