Anything that kills its host is an unsuccessful parasite. The reason it wipes out a community is that it would have a break in an isolated African community. Since Ebola (Zaire/Sudan) spreads through bodily fluids, it may spread through mass Malaria immunizations, where a dirty needle is used, or when the host dies, Its relatives might kiss the body, where virus particles spread into their mouth. Whereas an airborne strain (a human Ebola Reston) could spread around the world in days, before patient zero dies, due to its incubation period.
