The Center for Disease Control (CDC) has issued a serious warning to all hospitals, clinics, and doctors offices across America.
A vial of deadly virus disappeared from a LAB in Houston a few months ago (no known antidote or vaccine.) A couple of months later (February) young people have died from a “mysterious” illness in the same Houston area; now this month (May) it appears to have spread to neighboring Alabama. Symptoms are the same. Could this be ”bio-terrorism.” ? The beating around the bush, in the news reports, only serves to galvanize this opinion. Where will this lead and how far will it spread?
MONTGOMERY, Ala. – A mysterious respiratory illness has left five people hospitalized and two dead in southeast Alabama, state health officials said Tuesday.
Seven people have been admitted to hospitals with a fever, cough and shortness of breath in recent weeks, Alabama Department of Public Health spokeswoman Mary McIntyre said in a statement.
Two of the seven have died. The Alabama Department of Public Health and the Centers for Disease Control Respiratory Laboratory are analyzing lab tests from all seven patients. McIntyre says officials hope to have preliminary results on the samples back by Wednesday or Thursday morning.
The illness was first reported late last week and the last of the seven patients was hospitalized Monday, McIntyre said.
