Ebola rumors and confusion are nearly as out of control as the virus itself, according to a professor at the University of North Georgia. Dr. Davison Sangweme, assistant professor of biology and parasitology at the university, spoke to more than 100 students Monday at the Gainesville campus. “My aim in talking about this is basically to shed some light on what is known about the virus and the disease,” Sangweme said, “and to kind of get rid of the ignorance and misinformation that breed fear among us.”The Ebola virus is believed to have first occurred in remote villages in what is now the Democratic Republic of Congo, Sangweme said.
