At least six people have died and 48 more have fallen ill from a mystery illness in New Brunswick, Canada. Many reported feeling forgetful and easily confused by the strange illness. Local government is now racing to unearth more about the mystery progressive neurological syndrome as there is currently no known cause. Out of the six people reported dead, their ages ranged from 18 to 85. (Sounds like a vaccine related issue by the age range)
As well as confusion and brain fuzziness, people have also reported feeling an unusual mix of symptoms, with anxiety, dizziness, hallucinations, pain, memory problems and progressive loss of mobility all forming a mix bizarre effects on brain.
Investigations have been launched.
The Public Health Agency of Canada (PHAC) sounded the alarm an alert about a large batch of unusual neurological cases in the region late last year.
The agency provided specialized expertise early in the investigation by interpreting diagnostic and autopsy results.
They worked with a New Brunswick neurologist to identify a case definition for the cluster.
