Killer Spores in Florida

Florida hospital sued over mold
Tampa, Fla. | February 05, 2009 12:01:13 AM IST

Three families are suing St. Joseph's Hospital in Tampa, Fla., alleging their children died after exposure to a dangerous fungus.

Attorney Steve Yerrid said the children, who were being treated for cancer, died of mold-related infections. He said the fungus was released during a construction project at the hospital, the St. Petersburg (Fla.) Times reported Wednesday.

The report said each child's infection was linked to aspergillus, a common mold found in soil, air and construction dust.


One comment from a different site:

I run a small business and was contacted today by a company developing a new technology to sterilize hospitals. They are in a real sweat to get parts and in the course of our conversation explained to me that there is some sort of super spore exploding in a hospital somewhere in central florida. It was a small hospital, 250 beds, and they are having 2-3 deaths per day. Because it has a nearby retirement community, apparently the deaths aren't raising any red flags locally except the hospital staff that know what is going on.

I forget the name of the spore...something like aspirla or aspilella or something.

He said within 6 hours of symptoms, its 100% lights out...nothing can be done.

if any of you have oldsters in nursing homes or hospitals, and you like having them around, best check em out and take them somewhere else. Sounds from what this guy said they would be better off in a dumpster.

According to this guy, ALL hospitals have this spore, it is well known and a problem. It seems now, however, the spores are furiously replicating (however they do that) and the potential for disaster is huge.

My opinion:
It's news like this that isn't reported on the mainstream media networks that keeps us in the dark about what's going on in the world. The long-term ramifications of this spore could be quite serious. Please research aspergillus if you think you, or someone you know, may have any symptoms.
