Mysterious Flu deaths spark internet speculation over airborne bioweapons

(The proximity to Fort Dietrick, where the Army has tested chemical and biological agents makes this a strong possibility; another, more off-beat explanation could be a virus carried to earth by cometary dust.)

A “death cluster” in Maryland is causing some buzz on the Internet today, just as the CDC confirms an unknown strain of influenza A caused quick, violent lung infections resulting in the death of multiple family members. According to a local news affiliate in Maryland:

The Calvert County investigation into the flu deaths of 3 family members in Lusby, Maryland, found two of them–a 58 year-old brother and his 56-year-old-sister died of serious lung infections, a complication of seasonal flu.

The CDC already has confirmed the siblings died of influenza A. The strain is still unknown. Their 81-year-old mother, who was being cared for by her three children died at home Thursday of complications from the flu. The surviving sibling, a 51-year-old woman, remains in guarded condition at MedStar Washington Hospital Center in Washington, D.C., where she is responding to treatment.
