Marburg Outbreak in Angola

According to this New Scientist story, the Marburg virus outbreak in Angola that started in March has now spread into all age groups. Prior to this the virus was mainly infecting children. The virus has killed 271 of 311 reported cases.

Should I be surprised that this story isn’t getting the same kind of coverage in the mainstream media that, say, the SARS outbreak received?
