State and city health officials are investigating the outbreak of a mystery illness in at least two Anchorage high schools that caused dozens of students to call in sick or be sent home this week with symptoms of nausea, vomiting and diarrhea.
Friday alone, school nurses across the district sent home as many as 80 students with roughly the same symptoms, from what Nancy Edtl, the Anchorage School District's head nurse, described as a "noro-like virus." Most of those affected have recovered in 12 to 48 hours, according to state health officials.
Or it could be stuff floating in from China. The air quality over China is horrid, but when it gets into the jetstream it becomes everyones problem.

It could be from a virus cloud. You know that Korea problem thing? Perhaps it could be related. Is it a part of warfare to give a population the squirts to slow them down from functioning, as long as the illness is temporary and non-lethal? This illness could be fallout of some non-lethal warfare stuff going on.

A more apt description is hot plasma jetting from all possible orifices simultaneously.
