The small town of Kantaby, population 3,624, was having a kind of an epidemic. Lots of diseases—strange ones, too. Not just colds, the flu, and the usual meningitis breakouts. But the strange ones, the rare ones. Like West Nile disease, Malaria, Tuberculosis, Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (commonly known as COPD), rabies, Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease (a rare neurodegenerative disease that rapidly, progressively, and severely affects the brain and eventually leads to the development of many tiny holes in the brain), and Lupus. And Chagas, a disease caused by a parasite transmitted via the Triatoma bug (also known as the “kissing bug”).
And no one appeared to be recovering.
