New Mystery Illness Could Be The Beginning Of A Second Pandemic

This year has been one of the most trying and frustrating experiences that we as a human race will ever endure and with 2020 coming to an end we can only hope that it will take all the bad luck with it.

But as we are about to turn the page into 2021 something deadly and mysterious is gaining speed and the scariest part is no one knows what is causing it.

It's a new mystery illness coming out of Asia.

A “mystery” illness linked to one death put more than 300 people in the hospital over the weekend in the southern Indian state of Andhra Pradesh. Dozens of residents in Eluru city started falling ill on Saturday night, with some losing consciousness.

The patients reported symptoms similar to those associated with epilepsy, including headaches, nausea, vomiting and seizures. The number of patients rose sharply throughout Sunday. By Monday morning 315 people were in a local hospital. More than 150 patients were released after treatment, but that left about half of those who were admitted with the unexplained illness still in Eluru’s hospital.

A 45-year-old man who was brought in on Sunday morning with nausea and seizures died, but doctors said he had recovered from the epilepsy-like symptoms and died of other causes, according to the Indian news outlet, Scroll.

China’s secrecy during the early days of the COVID-19 crisis, combined with their recent run-ins with Indian soldiers, may reignite a number of conspiracy theories about Beijing’s awful humanitarian record and their willingness to allow diseases to bolster their international interests.
