Nine dead in Nepal

An unknown disease has broken out in Nepal, according to Xinhuanet and some local sources. None of the stories is very detailed, and all repeat the same facts: Nine people have died in eastern Nepal in recent weeks, the last two on Saturday night within hours of displaying symptoms: high fever, headache, bleeding from the nose, and vomiting blood.

Many victims of Spanish flu displayed such symptoms, so this outbreak deserves watching.
