"We hope that media reports can pressure the relevant departments to pay more attention to the disease. Do not make any irresponsible conclusions and say it is caused by fear or psychological effect – it is a real virus. Many doctors, including doctors from Beijing also say this is an infectious disease." Doctors from mainland China also believe patients might catch the disease. However, the exact number of people infected remains unknown and what the mortality rate is, and how many have died from it.
New Tang Dynasty Television (NTDTV) is a Chinese language television broadcaster based in New York City. Since its launch in 2001, NTDTV has extended its 24/7 programming to cover North America, Asia, Europe and Australia with a wide range of cultural, leisure, political, and news programs in Mandarin Chinese and select programs in Cantonese and English. One of the station's missions, according to the official website, is to foster mutual understanding between Chinese and Western societies and promote multiculturalism, peace and compassion. NTDTV also puts on an annual Chinese New Year Spectacular, which celebrates Chinese culture and includes content on Falun Gong.

Possibly TB, although even in it's most virulent form, it usually takes longer to kill. It could be TB if all of those who have or are dying have been ill for weeks. Influneza and/or subsequent pneumonia fit better, unless there's a faster strain of TB with which I'm unfamiliar.
Tuberculosis (abbreviated as TB for tubercle bacillus or Tuberculosis) is a common and often deadly infectious disease caused by mycobacteria, in humans mainly Mycobacterium tuberculosis . Tuberculosis usually attacks the lungs (as pulmonary TB) but can also affect the central nervous system, the lymphatic system, the circulatory system, the genitourinary system, the gastrointestinal system, bones, joints, and even the skin. Other mycobacteria such as Mycobacterium bovis, Mycobacterium africanum, Mycobacterium canetti, and Mycobacterium microti also cause tuberculosis, but these species are less common in humans.

You too, don't you understand that divided we fall. It's us against our governments. The Chinese people are pawns in this as well as the Koreans and the Iranians. It's our greed hungry leaders and the bankers who wants us to kill each other. You think you are awake but you are still sleeping. I bet you still watch reality shows, American Idol, etc. These are all designed to dumb you down and it's worked. Stop, think, look for leadership that believes in the Golden Rule and then act against the appropriate aggressor.

This is scary.
A new infectious disease is spreading in large areas of Mainland China. Symptoms are similar to AIDS but it spreads faster between family members, even via bodily fluids like saliva. Mr. Lin from Yunnan Province caught a disease last May, unlike anything he had seen before. "This disease destroys immunity cells just like AIDS. The lowest amount of immunity cells of some patients is only 200, mine is 400. The doctor couldn't find many antibodies, so he called it 'Fear of AIDS' disease." Preliminary research shows that patients have symptoms of fatigue, chronic diarrhea, swollen lymph nodes, and weakened immunity. But doctors cannot find any sign of the HIV virus. "A huge number of people caught the nameless virus but the doctors cannot make a thorough check. So they make a conclusion that it's a 'Fear of AIDS' disease. The symptoms are very much like those of AIDS."
Add to this. The huge amount of travel increase of westerners to China as of late.
I think is worth watching.
