    One of those situations where I have no clue where to post the thread - if someone has a better place, place move it.

    With respect to the undiagnosed illness, leptospirosis comes to mind, as does CCHF. With five weeks having past since the death, it does not seem to be something highly transmissible as no other cases have been reported. It is also possible that this could be an unreported H1N1 death. The description is just too sketchy. By the tone of the articles, I'm not sure the authorities even care what the cause of the death was, as long as it wasn't vaccine-linked. It is even possible that this is the result of some kind of non-infectious illness (liver failure?).

    Actually, the two articles above have a small discrepancy - one says he died December 25, and both say he joined the army in January. That's not possible, and raises doubts as to the quality of the above information.
