    It's related to rabies, but how does it "look" like rabies?

    Then the words they're looking for is "related to" not "looks like". "Looks like" equates to "presents as", which means it can't act like Ebola.

    It's nothing like rabies aside from being a rhabdovirus.

    That's a matter of interpretation. In phylogenetic terms, it would be acceptable to say that it "looks like" rabies (based on phylogenetic signatures). I think you're taking this a bit too literally.
