There weren't many details from the news here either.  She was airlifted 
to Switzerland and recovered.  There was no mention as to where she 
picked it up, precisely, nor any information as to the strain.  Other 
than being a chimpanzee researcher, there was no information as to how 
she might have contracted it (body fluid contact, aerosol, other).  
Basically, no real information, period.
