Deadly Mystery Illness Spreading In Texas

A new and unknown disease is spreading in parts of Texas. Half of those infected have died. The symptoms include those symptoms associated with the Flu, such as; fever, body aches, chills, nausea, headaches, as well as pneumonia and kidney failure. All patients have tested negative for the Flu. This is a new and unknown disease. Among the infected include family members of radio host, Alex Jones. One of Jones' cousins has died of the disease and another family member is now infected and in the hospital.

I'm not a doctor but the symptoms are almost identical to Hantavirus, which is spread by mice droppings and urine. The Hantavirus can be inhaled in an area with rodent pee and feces. Other theories include a brand new strain of Flu that the tests haven't been able to pick up on or a completely new pathogen.


NOTE: Word is that they are saying this may be H1N1. If so, then the Flu shot will protect you. If you did not get a Flu shot this year you are at risk and could possibly die if you catch it.

Makes me want to get a flu shot now. Yet, I have heard troubling things about the flu shot. :/
