Employees and in-house patients of a ward at the Mulleriyawa National Institute of Mental Health have fallen ill mysteriously, forcing the authorities to close down the ward from yesterday, hospital sources said.

They said those who had fallen ill complained of respiratory problems. It is also learnt that a female staff member who worked at this ward number nine, had died two weeks ago and doctors had confirmed death was due to a heart problem.

Sources said another female nurse who works at the same ward, was in a critical condition at the Kandy Hospital.(Ranjan Kasturi)

    I don’t have an iota of information regarding any of above cases – hence going to walk in the dark by clinging on to few words in the report.

    “Mysterious” –rather uncommon, “ward” = public place, Srilanka = Warm/hot climate, breathing difficulties = respiratory, one death = fatal, another one critically ill.

    A blind guess- possible Legionnaire’ Disease – This is an uncommon form of pneumonia caused by legionella bacterium, that is caused by breathing in small water droplets of contaminated water. (air conditioning systems, piped born water, cooling towers, hospital showers)

    There is also a milder version of this, which is called Pontiac Fever.
