An unknown disease that has claimed
nearly 250 lives so far, has spread terror in the districts of
western Nepal, specifically in Bajura
and Accham. Efforts to trace the cause
and identify the disease which has been
raging for the past two months, have
come to naught. The symptoms seem
rather innocuous with patients complaining only of light fever, headaches,
pain in the joints and loss of appetite
resulting in sudden death.
