PUTNAMVILLE, Ind. (January 24, 2016)–An offender at the Putnamville Correctional Facility has died after being diagnosed with rapidly progressive flu-like symptoms.

Another man is hospitalized and is on a ventilator for support.

Indiana Correction officials say they are dealing with an outbreak of patients with progressive viral like symptoms with several patients progressing to severe shortness of breath and pneumonia like symptoms.

The Indiana Department of Correction activate an influenza control plan after several inmates became ill at the beginning of last week.

Currently, nine offenders  are undergoing close observation at Terre Haute Regional Hospital and a similar number are being treated at the medical observation unit at the correctional facility.

CDC is in on this along with the State Health Department. I wonder what's going to shake out on this one? I hope they contain this thing, sounds damn serious to me.

Dk....Its all about fear. Be afraid...very afraid. Pharmaceutical companies report that they don't have a pill or an immunization for the disease-du-jour and it  might kill you.

I'm still confused as to how mankind has lived on this planet for a billion years and consistently managed to reproduce without Viagra. It must be a miracle.

:lol_alpha:
