 ScienceDaily: Multiple Genetic Varients Clue To Source Of Deadly Marburg Hemorrhagic Fever Outbreak
Daniel G. Bausch, associate professor of Tropical Medicine at Tulane University School of Public Health and Tropical Medicine and an international team of researchers identified multiple genetic variants of the virus in the outbreak, meaning the fever may have been spread directly to humans by the host animals.
Marburg hemorrhagic fever, a severe filovirus-caused disease related to Ebola, was first identified in European research facilities in 1967 after outbreaks traced to infected monkeys imported from Uganda.
The discovery of multiple different genetic variants of the virus indicates that the two-year outbreak was fueled by repeated new introductions of the virus into humans from the primary reservoir, rather than simply a single introduction followed by person-to-person spread.

According to Dr. Peter Woerster of the Marburg Herder Insitute, this lion used to be located at the Lahntor near the old university, but was moved at some time.
He speculated that it had been moved when the street and bridge over the Lahn were widened.
The wording appears newer than the rest of the statue so it is probably safe to assume that the lion was originally part of a larger complex built to memorialize the university's fallen after World War One and "updated" to include the Second World War only later.
