    This has been found in England last week from someone coming back from Nigeria. It is a virus similar to smallpox. Two more people have been diagnosed with it since then and they haven't been in contact with patient zero, the person coming back from Nigeria.

    They're saying right now, it doesn't spread easily between people but how did two people get it without contact with an infected person?

    How concerned should we be or are we even prepared at all if this spreads further?
