    British soldiers sickened by mystery fever in Afghanistan

    London-AP -- Authorities are trying to trace the cause of a mysterious fever in Afghanistan.

    British officials say 18 staff members at a British military field hospital near Kabul have fallen ill with the unidentified fever.

    They say two of the soldiers are "very seriously ill" and have been evacuated to hospitals in Europe.

    The fever appears to be contagious.

    Sounds like Hemorragic Fever. Any Korean War vets out there who remember that?

    I saw that too on the news this morning. They have also quarantined something like 350 - 400 other people.

    The reports are that the infection is quite similar to meningitis. Treatable, but very debilitating and aggressive.
