In the southeastern part of India, a mysterious disease is rapidly spreading, it sent more than three hundred people to hospital beds. Most of the cases are in the city of Eluru located in the state of Andhra Pradesh. According to the local media reports, people with strange symptoms were found in hospitals. They exhibit seizures, loss of consciousness, nausea and vomiting.
One of the admitted patients with such symptoms died as a result of cardiac arrest. According to the official statements, the strange disease has nothing to do with the coronavirus, because the carried out tests showed negative results, although the COVID-19 is widespread in this region.
All patients admitted to hospitals were tested for blood, but the results of the study did not show the presence of viral infections. The scientists and physicians still cannot explain the situation, but they are carefully studying a number of possible causes of the disease.
According to the preliminary data, contaminated water may become the source of an unexplained infection. During the observation of the patients, it was established that everyone had a common source of water.
But state health officials later rejected the option, saying that water samples had been tested and they had all ruled out the possibility of any contamination. Polluted air cannot be the source of the disease.
The samples taken and examined do not indicate air as the source of the virus. Blood tests for pathogens, such as E.coli, were also not clear. Infections caused by this pathogen do not create the symptoms that patients now experience. Specialists from leading research centers in India joined in to investigate the situation.
