Nipah Deaths in Bangladesh (ooh, that rhymes)

Over the course of last Thursday and Friday, two children died of Nipah virus infection at the Faridpur Medical College Hospital in Bangladesh. Local authorities began a campaign last Saturday to educate people about the risks of contracting this new paramyxovirus (from pigs).
