On April 22, MSNBC ran a short piece on the appearance of this deadly fungus here and there in Oregon: http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/36722426.
Now Hank Albarelli has looked into this story (the fungus having struck in Oregon, Washington and Idaho), doing it with the thoroughness and clarity that mark his excellent book, A Terrible Mistake.
Hank, let me remind you, will be speaking Monday evening (5/10) at 7:00 p.m., at the McNally Jackson Bookstore, 52 Prince St. (b/t Lafayette and Mulberry).
Mystery Disease Linked to Missing Israeli Scientist

Media outlets across the Northwest United States began reporting on April 24 that a strange, previously unknown strain of virulent airborne fungi that has already killed at least six people in Oregon, Washington and Idaho is spreading throughout the region. The fungus, according to expert microbiologists, who have expressed alarm about the emergence of the strain, is a new genotype of Cryptococcus gatti fungi. Cryptococcus gatti is normally found in tropical and subtropical locations in India, South America, Africa and Australia. Microbiologists in the United States are reporting that the strain found here, for reasons not yet fully understood, is far deadlier than any found overseas.
