  • A major jazz concert, with top groups from Europe, the U.S.,

  • and Africa, is being held in Vienna for 9 days and is

  • scheduled to move on to Budapest for 5 days. On the 9th

  • day in Vienna, the following transpires.

  • An African musician from a popular group calls the night

  • clerk at his small hotel asking for medical help. He says he

  • is very ill and that his colleague has passed out.

  • Response to the incident has been slower than usual

  • because the incident occurred at 8 o’clock on a Sunday

  • morning.

  • The police investigation of the death confirms that the

  • deceased carried a Cote d’Ivoire passport and had traveled

  • from his home in Abidjan 10 days ago. Hotel records show

  • that his colleague was from the Cote d’Ivoire as well.

  • In all, 34 musicians – mostly from Africa – were staying in

  • the hotel; 20 of them had left on a 7 a.m. bus bound for

  • Budapest, 6 had left at 6 a.m. for Zagreb, and 8 left with both

  • means of travel and destination unknown.

  • Most of the 34 African musicians who stayed in the hotel had

  • been drinking at the bar until 2 a.m. following the midnight

  • conclusion of their performances.

  • Preliminary reports from the hospital indicate that the caller

  • remains unconscious, suffering from a tropical disease.

  • Emergency checks with world health officials in Atlanta

  • indicate a current Ebola outbreak in central Africa. Tropical

  • disease experts from a major Vienna medical center say

  • the illness could be Ebola.
