"US probes cases of pneumonia in Iraq
Jordan Times, Sunday, August 3, 2003
WASHINGTON (AFP) — The US army has dispatched investigative medical teams to Iraq and Germany to look into an unusually large number of cases of
pneumonia that have affected about 100 US troops deployed in and around Iraq and left two of them dead, defence officials said. "If the teams
determine that the cases are unusual in any way, they will make preventive or corrective recommendations," the office of the army surgeon general
said in a statement Friday, adding that at the moment, nothing appeared to be out of the ordinary."
