Mysterious Skin Disease Kills 19, Vietnam Seeking Help

Quang Ngai: Vietnam is seeking international help, after 19 dead and over 170 people have reported symptoms of a skin infection. The symptoms start out as a skin rash on the hands and feet, leads to liver problems, and then results in multiple organ failure. Vietnamese health officials haven’t found the cause of the deadly disease. BBC News reported: “‘This disease is challenging as we have not identified the root causes. If it is just an external skin disease why is it causing deaths and failures inside internal organs?’ Deputy Health Minister Thanh Long said on Friday.” For more information, visit: http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-asia-17799053
