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.
It wasn’t immediately clear which municipalities the illnesses were concentrated in.
“We’re only aware of the Southeast, but we don’t know — we haven’t received reports from anywhere else,” McIntyre said. “That’s why we’re trying to get the information out.”
McIntyre said it’s unclear what’s causing the illness but some of the seven patients also had the flu. Authorities are urging hospital staff to wear masks when caring for patients who appear to be suffering from respiratory illnesses.
The Centers for Disease Control referred all questions to Alabama health officials.
Possible Middle East Origin? Bio-terrorism connection?
In March 2013 the CDC released a warning concerning a strain which was bio-engineered and released from the middle east. This new “mysterious” disease in Alabama sounds eerily familar.
A new SUPERBUG (CRE) is killing 50% of the people it infects. Doctors believe the this lethal virus has been created because of our flippant use of antibiotics.
There is no doubt that Americans are excessively using antibiotics. Many doctors are simply dispensing antibiotics to their patients for as little as the common cold.
But this warning from the CDC is just the first of two warnings that should make you stop for a moment to consider the health and safety of your family and friends.
On Thursday, the CDC issued a very urgent warning to all media outlets, hospitals, physicians and medical clinics across America.
A new deadly virus, not previously seen in humans has now sickened at least 14 people overseas. The death toll from this new virus stands at 8.
But what is very alarming and concerning to health officials is the way in which this virus is transmitted – FROM HUMAN TO HUMAN!
According to media reports, the virus originated in the Middle East, but has spread into Britain. It is similar to the deadly SARS Virus that hit many Asian nations 10 years ago because they are both found in bats.
The signs and symptoms of this viral infection include, severe respiratory illness, high fever, cough and difficulty breathing. – EFG-BN
