Should the start of this page not include:

The genus Ebolavirus presently has the following known species:

  1. Zaire ebolavirus (ZEBOV)...

rather than the bare "ZEBOV..."

To faciliate the change, if others agree:

The genus Ebolavirus presently has the following known species (named after the places where they were first identified):

  1. Zaire ebolavirus (ZEBOV)
  2. Sudan ebolavirus (SEBOV )
  3. Reston ebolavirus (REBOV)
  4. Cote d'Ivoire ebolavirus (CIEBOV)
  5. Bundibugyo ebolavirus (BEBOV - named after Bundibugyo in Western Uganda)

OK, I've edited the introductory section, as well as adding a section about the 2014 outbreak, with a timeline adapted from BMJ (and referenced).
