Not sure if this is just a fluke and they got bit by a bug or exposed to something. Rapid mysterious death overseas gets my attention. Very odd, very scary if it is a virus or infectious disease that can spread.

Before she died, she texted her father complaining she had numb hands
The pair both fell ill and went to the hospital but died days apart afterwards

MOH puts in place public health measures following US couple death
The Health Ministry has put in place necessary public health measures following the death of two American citizens in Nadi over the weekend.

In a statement, the Ministry says they’re still investigating the couple’s death who arrived in the country on the 22nd of last month.
The Ministry confirms the couple presented with an illness while holidaying. Although they were provided medical treatment as the standard of care, their illnesses progressively worsened and despite best efforts – they died within a few days of each other.

According to WFAA News, David and Michelle Paul were supposed to be on the trip of a lifetime, halfway around the world in Fiji.
But the Fort Worth couple died suddenly and unexpectedly and their family back in the U.S. is now coping with a tragic loss.
David Paul, an Air Force veteran and his wife Michelle were raising a 2-year-old son in Fort Worth. While the cause of death remains under investigation, the family says that early indications point to some type of virus that was strong enough to debilitate two healthy, young people.

The Ministry is also working with the Police Force’s forensics department, the World Health Organization and the United States Centre for Disease Control and Prevention on determining the cause of death.

Meanwhile, the US Embassy in Fiji is working with the government, police, and health officials on the matter.
The embassy says it has facilitated contact between the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Fiji’s Health ministry.
At this point, it is not aware of any specific public-health threat to the community.

Quote:Michelle Paul apparently died first. There were plans to transport David to Australia for further treatment, but he died before that could happen, possibly from developing pneumonia. A U.S. Department of State official confirmed the deaths of Michelle and David Paul in Fiji and offered condolences to the family. They are monitoring the investigation by local authorities.
Reached by phone, the U.S. Embassy in Fiji did not comment on the Pauls' death specifically, but said that the government there had been warning of a dangerous flu season that is just hitting the region. According to a report by the Fiji Broadcasting Corporation, police on the island have confirmed an illness caused the couple's deaths. The report says further testing on the remains will be done overseas.
Calanog said the couple's remains cannot be returned to the United States until a cause of death is determined. If it was an infectious disease, their bodies will have to be cremated.
That is scary as hell! I wonder what really happened.

Ddaaamnn. That is so sad...
And cremate... Uh huh. Sounds like a good cover story.
I wonder if it has anything to do with the water.

~mc~

wow very strange

sad for their 2 year old and family :(
The main symptom was numb hands?

The first thing that comes to my mind is Toxic Shock Syndrome or some sort of bacterial infection...but there aren't very many details to go by.
Maybe I am paranoid because I read the ebola thread on here last week but it sounds odd. The organizations that are watching and investigating plus they were going to fly him to Australia. Is that normal for Fiji to fly sick people to Australia?

Maybe Australia has better hospitals and specialists equipped to diagnose what was wrong with them?

Australia is probably a lot closer to Fiji than anywhere else with specialists?
I reminder that you should not visit the third world.

There does seem to be a lot left out of this story. It make my Spidey senses tingle.

Or it might just be a short in my tin foil hat antenna. Rolleyes
I looked at RSOE map and they have a case of Nipah virus in India. Not real close to Fiji but watching...

http://hisz.rsoe.hu/alertmap/database/in...-68170-IND it can be epidemic

Nipah virus:
Human infections range from asymptomatic infection to acute respiratory infection, and fatal encephalitis. Infected people initially develop symptoms including fever, headaches, myalgia, vomiting and sore throat. This can be followed by dizziness, drowsiness, altered consciousness, and neurological signs that indicate acute encephalitis. Some people can also experience atypical pneumonia and severe respiratory problems, including acute respiratory distress. Encephalitis and seizures occur in severe cases, progressing to coma within 24 to 48 hours.
