OK, so I have been posting on this subject for a few days now, when I noticed that all contact from the actual village had ceased. No news articles (that I can find) have any new info. It seems that the last thing that came out of the village itself was that the villagers were blocking the paths to the infected houses/people in a effort to contain the illness. No new news from the village itself has appeared since.

Now, I am beginning to get concerned. If this virus took a turn for the worse and somehow got out . . . I'll leave the rest to you.

So, here are the links to the last two posts:

And here are the links to the articles:

Also, there are news articles that are newer than 24-48 hours, but these are almost carbon copies of the original articles. They seem to just be copies.

Symptoms in Chronological Order:

1. Rash on Hands and Feet

2. High Fever

3.Loss of Appetite

4.Organ Failure (in severe cases.)

Young people seem more inclined to get the illness, though adults have contacted it as well. The virus (as of the last known information) responds well to early treatment.

I will to continue to update as information becomes available.

Hmm. Interesting. I wonder if it spreads...? That's really all I have. Just more questions. Nothing grand.

Hey OP. I found this link, not sure if it repeats what you have already posted.

The virus spreads through direct contact with an infected person’s oral discharges or saliva, the fluid from burst blisters or the stool of infected persons.

Not spread by air Thank God. The article also mentions they have not ruled out a chemical cause.

S&F for your efforts keeping us informed. No travel alerts I found from the CDC

Yes I know what you mean, but there are many explanations for the delay, ongoing tests, the difficulty of information transport. We do not know how many levels information has to go through there before it is disseminated. There is no danger of a rapid spread as in an airborne pathogen. The isolation they have imposed will help contain it.

I am not understanding what is causing liver/organ failure, which is the cause of death it seems. That has more of a chemical signature to me.

Hey, I'm not a doctor but the other day, I started noticing local drug stores offering free shingles vaccines and I thought it was the strangest thing because shingles has been around for centuries, just as long as chickenpox, and I've never seen any type of public campaign to protect yourself against shingles (there's a commercial about it too).

I mention this because the description of this illness sounds somewhat similar with the exception of organ failure but viruses mutate all the time. Just a thought...
