New Disease… Only in New Brunswick

43 cases of a mysterious neurological disease have turned up since 2015 in the Canadian province of New Brunswick, sending neurologists searching for answers and leaving communities on edge. 

5 people have died.
 
The disease is similar to the rare and fatal Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease.
 
“... this is something new, and we need to get on the stick and figure out what this is,” says University of British Columbia neurologist Neil Cashman.
