Vietnam has asked international health experts to help investigate a mystery illness that has killed 19 people and sickened 171 others in Quang Ngai Province, an official said Friday. The infection has mostly affected children and young people. If not treated, it can damage the liver and other organs, said the official, Le Han Phong, chairman of the People’s Committee in the Ba To district. The Health Ministry has asked the World Health Organization and the United States, through the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, to help investigate.
