11 States Now Reporting over 285 Outbreaks of Cyclospora

The CDC has now confirmed that at least 285 cases have been reported in 11 states concerning a stomach virus normally only found in Tropical regions.

Th culprit in question is a one-celled parasite called Cyclospor normally only found in Latin America. This gem causes diarrhea, stomach cramps and many symptoms that would be associated with a viral stomach bug.

Most of the people affected were in Nebraska Texas and Iowa but new cases have been reported in Minnesota, Ohio and New Jersey and our neighbors in Kansas.

The CDC says the parasite is not spread from hand to hand so must have been a contamination in a food or water source.  If you find your entire family with these symptoms start putting two and two together and see if you can track down the one thing in common that everyone ate or drank.  The CDC is feverishly trying to find the link.
