  1. It is different from Ebola in every way possible. Ebola virus is a filovirus which is drastically different from a coronavirus like SARS or the Wuhan virus. Coronaviruses are typically spread via exhaled/coughed/sneezed water droplets while filoviruses typically require direct exposure to the bodily fluids of an infected person to spread. Coronaviruses typically cause respiratory infections, filoviruses tend to cause hemorrhagic fever. Most coronaviruses are harmless or have low death rates. Some such as SARS are very serious. The Wuhan virus is not harmless but not as serious as SARS or MERS. Filoviruses typically have very high death rates associated with them.
