On top of everything else these poor people have to deal with:
(AP) JOPLIN, Mo. – An aggressive fungus is striking Joplin tornado victims, contributing to a handful of deaths.
Doctors told the Springfield News-Leader that at least nine survivors may have contracted blood-vessel invading zygomycosis infections.
Overall numbers weren’t available. The Springfield-Greene County Health Department declined to release them, citing patient privacy concerns.
Kendra Williams, of the health department, says the common fungus likely came from soil or vegetative materials imbedded in the skin by the tornado.
